Dry Skin Vs. Psoriasis
Do you know the difference between Psoriasis and dry skin? Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes flares of skin cell growth, resulting in red, scaly, and itchy skin lesions. On the other hand, dry skin occurs when lipids that produce oil in skin cells run low, and this causes moisture to deplete from the outer layer of the skin. To treat Psoriasis, consult your dermatologist to find the best treatment plan for your condition. If it's mild, topical treatments can often keep it under control. However, prevention is key to treating dry skin. Try stopping it before it starts by regularly applying moisture to your skin, using a humidifier at home, and cleansing with a mild soap.
