Dry skin is common in the winter, but could your winter itch be more than dry skin? Psoriasis and eczema are skin conditions that may cause dry, itchy skin but can be diagnosed and treated at The Savin Center in New Haven. There’s no need to hide your psoriasis or eczema under your clothing anymore!
New Haven Psoriasis is a chronic condition in which the skin cells grow too quickly, resulting in thick, red, silver, or white patches of skin known as plaques. Plaques can become tender and itchy and appear almost anywhere on the body including the hands, back, feet, scalp, elbows, and knees.
Eczema is also a chronic condition, causing the skin to become irritated or inflamed. There are several different types of eczema, but all eczema rashes become dry, scaly, thick, itchy, and red. Eczema in New Haven can appear on the back of the knees, hands, feet, face, wrists, and more.
With diagnosis and proper care of psoriasis and eczema at The Savin Center, these conditions can be treated as more than just a “winter itch.” Both psoriasis and eczema can be improved with light therapy, topical medications, oral medications, and lifestyle changes.
