Differences between common skin conditions: Eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea

Dermatitis in a man's arms

Almost everybody, at some point in their life, has had a rash on their skin. Redness, itching, swelling, scaling, and small zits are common skin conditions that you might have experienced at least once in your life. These skin conditions, although not serious, could be very debilitating to the confidence levels and mental health of a person.  The signs and symptoms are fairly very common for the human skin.

Common skin conditions

Eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea are the three most common skin conditions that require healthy skin routine, over-the-counter medications and supportive treatment if they are not of the severe types. However, it is safe to say that these conditions should be prevented in the first place. That is where CANhaveTODAY’s 100% natural and organic products would help build your confidence by making your skin fresh, beautiful, clear, and free from all the troublesome skin conditions mentioned above.

Always be aware of your skin problems

Almost all skin diseases and conditions exhibit more or less the same symptoms. These common symptoms as already enlisted above should not be the only means to determine what kind of condition the person has. You should be very well aware of your past medical history, your family history, and your allergies as well. All these things combined will help you prevent these conditions from ever happening to your skin. This will be cleared in the subsequent lines. Let us first clarify the differences these three types of skin diseases have in them.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition in which the patient complains of the following:

  • Severe itching
  • redness
  • Small zits or popouts which are blister-like.

These zits may shatter the confidence of the person whenever they are socializing with their peers and friends. In summer when most people wear clothes with bare skin, this eczema could disable the individual and stop them from socializing and connecting with other people. This is because this rash can become very eye-catching and a prominent thing on the skin of an affected person.

Eczema usually occurs in people who have other diseases like asthma and are prone to severe allergies. In such a case anti-inflammatory medication and ointments could be used. But if you know your history, which is very important, and you are aware that you are prone to eczema, then you can prevent this skin condition by using the wide range of products that we offer for skin care. CANhaveTODAY’s moisturizing creams are perfect for eczema prevention because such rash deteriorates with dryness and poor skin care.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a condition where the immune system of an individual is compromised and faulty. This could be due to family genetics. Regardless, the immune system fights against the body’s skin leading to a rash that is very distinctive in appearance. It normally occurs on elbows, knees, and scalp.

Some of the particular signs you would observe in the case of psoriasis are the following:

  • It causes severe itching and this would not be an understatement.
  • The rash is grey or silver
  • The surface of the rash is hardened to form a crust or scaly plaque.

This particular rash could cause a significant change in the mental health of individuals if their skin is showing all these hardened plaques and scaly patches of skin.

  • The affected individual would always try to hide their skin
  • They would talk and communicate very little so fewer people get to know about their condition
  • They would feel sad and depressed.

The best way to tackle this is to use topical steroids with a dermatologist’s consultation and to keep the skin moisturized and well-hydrated.  This is where CANhaveTODAY comes into play. Like in the case of Eczema, psoriasis could also be managed with the help of moisturizing creams and ointments that we have in our inventory. They keep your beautiful skin well-hydrated and moisturized throughout the day so that you have no issues socializing with your friends and peers. You will have a great confidence boost when you start using CANhaveTODAY’s products.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is another common skin condition on the upper portion of the body. Normally the face, neck, and chin are involved. The rash in this condition is somewhat similar to acne. The differences are minor and are following

  • In acne there are blackheads but in rosacea, there are no blackheads.
  • The zits  pop out on the face combined with the flushing and redness of the skin
  • Rosacea normally occurs on the face

Rosacea can occur due to a variety of reasons:

  • Sun exposure
  • Stress
  • Heat
  • Menstruation

The important take home message is that redness and inflammation are seen both in rosacea and eczema but the particular location of the rash on the face and the appearance of very small tiny blood vessels beneath the rash are suggestive of rosacea.
