Sweating on Psoriasis
Psoriasis is helped by vigorous exercise
Women who exercise vigorously may be reducing their risk of psoriasis, which is an immune disorder that causes inflammation and scaly patches on the skin.
In this particular study, vigorous exercise is classed as running, aerobic exercise or calisthenics, but doesn’t include jogging, playing tennis, swimming and cycling.
Physical activity lowers systemic inflammation, and lowers the risk of other inflammation-related diseases like type-2 diabetes, colon cancer, coronary artery disease and breast cancer.
Additionally, smoking, high alcohol intake and obesity can worsen psoriasis.
It seems that how we live our lives can play a role in how bad psoriasis can become.
