Exercise and Eczema

Exercising is an essential part of treating eczema. While the condition can cause dry, itchy and inflamed skin, exercise helps reduce the symptoms by providing the body with increased oxygen flow. Exercise also improves circulation of blood throughout the body, helping it better distribute essential vitamins and minerals to the skin. Additionally, exercise strengthens the immune system and helps to keep the skin in better condition, reducing the frequency of flare-ups.

Beyond reducing the symptoms of eczema, regular physical activity improves our overall health and increases energy levels, which reduce our risk of developing serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Exercise can also help maintain a healthy body weight, which is essential for preventing and managing other chronic diseases, such as arthritis and asthma.

Stress can be a factor in triggering flare-ups. When stressed, our bodies produce a hormone called cortisol, which can increase inflammation, leading to redness, itching, and even hives. Exercise reduces these levels, and in turn, reduce the symptoms. Diet is also a key factor in managing eczema symptoms. Eating foods that are high in vitamins and minerals reduce inflammation, while foods like dairy, gluten, and processed increase inflammation. Exercise and skincare go hand in hand. When it comes to eczema, exercise could be the reason you'll have no flare-ups.

The best way to start exercising is to begin slowly and increase intensity and duration over time. It is important to choose activities that are enjoyable and that don’t put too much strain on the skin or cause excessive sweating. Some examples of good exercises for people with eczema include swimming, walking, cycling, and yoga. If you experience any skin irritation or discomfort due to an exercise, it is important to stop and seek medical advice.
