Eczema is a chronic relapsing atopic dermatitis (AD) associated with pruritus, sleep disturbance, itching, weeping at location and poor quality of life of the patient. Treatment of eczema includes use of emollient, topical and systemic antimicrobial agents, corticosteroid or immunomodulating agents.
The terms “eczema” or “dermatitis” are very broad and can mean a whole family of skin conditions, ranging from dandruff, to contact dermatitis to atopic dermatitis.

To over simplify the differences between Eczema and Psoriasis, the following describes some basics;
Eczema usually shows up as very itchy patches that become red, swollen, and cracked from scratching. Rashes usually occur on the face, inside the elbows, behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it’s been linked to genetics and environmental factors. The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis, an allergic condition that often appears in babies and children. The condition may go away by age 2 or last through adulthood. Certain substances may trigger an eczema breakout, so it’s important to identify and avoid them. Common irritants include household cleansers, detergents, soaps, chlorine, and wool. Stress can also cause eczema to appear.
Psoriasisis is considered a lifelong condition that causes thickened, red patches of skin and silvery-white scales. Psoriatic patches can be itchy, sore, and even burn. They often are located on the outside of the elbows and knees, but psoriasis commonly affects the scalp and nails, too. Many things can trigger psoriasis, including stress, cold weather, skin damage, and certain medications. Unlike atopic dermatitis, psoriasis doesn’t usually appear before age 10. It’s more commonly found in adults.
These two types of Atopic Dermatitis occur on different body locations.
