I use to love to go swimming but no longer go as I worry it will affect my psoriasis. Does anyone go swimming still? If so does it affect it in anyway?
I have been told by quite a few people that chlorine actually helps their skin, similar to a salt bath or vinegar bath, so give it a try - you never know until you try something and the plus side - you will enjoy it so that's a major bonus ............
I'm sure psoriasis is affected by swimming pool water. The best for us is salty, ocean water tbh. Salt doesn't made any harm to anybody but chemicals using in swimming pools definitely yes. xxx
yes it works just make sure to shower after and apply cream ..it is a good lowpac exer..Docs recommended even
Chlorine has antibacterial properties and the same reason that the chlorine is bad for your skin and hair, generally is what makes it helpful for acne. That is, it dry out acne.
It depends on where I am at in my psoriasis cycle. If I am on the verge of a flare up I will avoid any irritant in fear of it pushing me over the edge. But if your skim is not too sore the chlorine is supposed to be good for cleaning the entire epidermis.
