How can we treat Psoriasis and Eczema naturally? Skin infections are on the rise and no time should be wasted on taking care of them as quickly as possible before further infection enters into the broken skin.
Psoriasis is defined as a autoimmune disease with patches of inflamed skin. These areas are typically itchy and red. The severity can vary and be small and localized, to complete body coverage. Injury to the skin can also bring on this disease or make it worse. Psoriasis is usually experienced long term. It has been determined that it is caused by a combination of genetic risk factors as well as environmental triggers. See some research here. Scientist have identified 70 genetic risk factors so far for this disease and 13 for psoriatic arthritis (swollen and achy joints), which up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis will later develop.
Eczema, or also known as dermatitis is also the result of inflammation of the skin. This disease is characterized by itchiness, a rash, small puss-filled blisters or red skin. Duration and area affected varies with each person.
Certain factors can trigger a skin irritation or event, such as: an infection, illness, skin injury, stress, toxins, vitamin D deficiency, some medications and even the weather. Psoriasis is usually associated with external allergic triggers (e.g. dander, chemicals, detergent and soaps, perfumes and metal exposure), while eczema is typically caused by food allergies.
