How are Rosacea and Psoriasis Different?

How are Rosacea and Psoriasis Different?
By Dr. Peter Klapper Ph.D.

Skincare has been a hot topic for years in terms of how to keep your skin looking fresh and young by wearing sunscreen, using creams and serums, etc. We as humans naturally care what we look like, and when an unexplained blemish or rash appears, it’s natural to feel concerned.

For many, that rash can go away with a few treatments and is never to be seen again, but for people who experience chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis and rosacea, unfortunately, it could be a condition they deal with for life.

August is Psoriasis Awareness Month and is a perfect way to recognize those 7 million in the United States living with this condition. And while psoriasis can be extremely bothersome to all of your body, if you find that your irritation is focused mainly on your face, then rosacea might be the cause. 

Rosacea vs Psoriasis
As we stated above, both are chronic skin conditions that affect millions. (In fact, rosacea impacts more than 14 million Americans.)

So, how are they different?

Well, psoriasis can affect your entire body and result in red, scaly plaques on your skin, among other symptoms, and rosacea causes a flushing that is typically contained to your face, targeting your nose and cheeks. In severe cases, rosacea can cause acne and thickened skin.

Both are genetic and age-related conditions, but unlike psoriasis which is caused by a faulty immune system that makes skin cells turn over too quickly, rosacea can be caused by several various factors including both immune responses and lifestyle choices such as the following:

  • a specific bacterium
  • a bug in the intestines
  • a mite that lives on the skin
  • a protein that normally protects the skin from infection
  • stress
  • extreme temps and too much sunlight
  • hot beverages and heavy alcohol consumption
  • spicy foods

While neither condition has a “cure,” there are ways to treat them. For both, it’s best to see a dermatologist to determine which skin condition you’re suffering from and then make the best decisions on treatment. Whether that means a change in lifestyle for rosacea treatment like staying out of the sun and avoiding extreme temperatures and light therapy for psoriasis. Each skin condition has different options in terms of treatment.
