Psoriasis and Eczema are two different skin conditions that can cause similar symptoms. However, there are some key differences between the two.

  • Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. This causes the skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, scaly patches of skin. Psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body, but it is most common on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.
  • Eczema  There are many different types of eczema, but the most common is atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is often triggered by allergies or irritants, such as dust mites, pet dander, or soaps. Discoid-eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes the skin to become inflamed and itchy.

What treatments are available?

Dermalux is a type of light therapy that uses LED lights to treat a variety of skin conditions, including eczema. The light therapy works by emitting specific wavelengths of light that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and healing properties.

For eczema, Dermalux uses red and near-infrared light. These wavelengths of light have been shown to reduce inflammation, improve skin hydration, and speed up the healing process. In some studies, Dermalux has been shown to be as effective as traditional topical treatments for eczema.
