Psoriasis v rosacea
What’s the difference, and how to treat them
First of all, let’s clear something up. Psoriasis and rosacea are not the same thing, though they are sometimes confused. We’re here to help you tell the difference, and treat them with gentle, loving care.
Psoriasis looks like red, scaly patches (sometimes covered in a silvery coating), and can affect the whole body. Rosacea causes redness and irritation across the face and, in severe cases, results in acne and thickened skin.
If you suffer from either, you are not alone. Millions of people across the US are affected – psoriasis occurs in both men and women, while rosacea is more common in women, particularly those going through menopause. As if that wasn’t annoying enough!
The symptoms can come and go, with flare-ups depending on diet, the weather, or stress. Certain skin products can also cause irritation, so avoid anything containing ingredients including alcohol, camphor, fragrance, glycolic acid, lactic acid, menthol, sodium laurel sulfate (often found in shampoos), and urea.
And while there is no cure, you can often help control both conditions with a gentle skincare regime (if your symptoms are severe, please see a dermatologist).
