Exercise is essential for good health and keeping psoriasis symptoms under control. But fears of a flare or having your psoriasis rash noticed can hold some people back from a good workout. Also, sweating can increase skin irritation if you have inverse psoriasis. Inverse psoriasis is the type that tends to affect the armpits, groin and other tender areas.
Don't let your psoriasis prevent you from getting the exercise you need to thrive. By taking a few steps to prevent friction, chafing and infection, you can stay active and keep your skin healthy.
