eczema vs. psoriasis

hi there. so i was wondering how can you tell the difference between eczema and psoriasis... in high school a dermatologist told me i had eczema. i got it on my hands then eventually on my arms back and a few other places. i have some cream that makes it go away but it usually finds a place to come back to. recently ive been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and my rheumatologist believes that i have psoriasis actually.

on my arm the rash was red and kind of bumpy (small bumps) and itchy. now i have a rash behind my ear which gets red and kind of flakey. i also have itchy toes which now are more scaley actually. is it possible i could have both eczema and psoriasis? thanks for the help!
