Swimming and Psoriasis

Posted on March 26, 2018

To swim or not to swim? That’s the question debated by members of MyPsoriasisTeam. Many praise sun and saltwater for calming their skin. “I'm at the beach any chance I get. It's the only relief I get and also clears it,” wrote one member. “We moved to Florida so I could get better and now I’m 95 percent clear. 😁,” shared another. Others avoid public beaches and pools due to embarrassment. MyPsoriasisTeam members offer a sense of humor to those worried about their skins' appearance. “There are many sights at swimming pools - bulging beer bellies, saggy bottoms, and disturbed hair styles,” one member commented. “Psoriatic skin just adds color to this lovely display!”

On MyPsoriasisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with psoriasis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Swimming is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Yes, saltwater does help. A bath with sea salts helps too.
