Can you play sports with psoriasis?


The onset of psoriasis can lead to the abandonment of sports activities, as physical and psychological discomfort causes the patient to isolate himself and suspend what were previously his daily routines.

Psoriasis is characterized by the presence of lesions, which obviously also negatively affect the mood of the sufferer, who often does not continue the activities he or she used to do before the onset of psoriasis. Research conducted in Finland found that most patients give up physical activity altogether or only partially. Another study, conducted in Italy, although confirming young people’s abandonment of sports activities, showed that a quarter of them found benefits in sports, preventing the natural course of the disease.

So while it is true that psoriasis patients tend to give up their habits, it is also true that consistent physical activity plays an important role in improving the symptoms of the disease. In addition, sports also reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and type 2 diabetes, which can occur as a result of psoriasis.

What sport to play?

Choosing a sport to play is not that difficult, just avoid contact sports, such as boxing or martial arts, as they may result in injuries or scratches on the skin. Swimming and all water sports are highly recommended, especially when practiced in the summer months and outdoors. The sun’s rays, in fact, bring benefit to psoriasis patients. If, on the other hand, swimming is done in a swimming pool, it is necessary to inquire about the amount of chlorine in the water and to rinse the body well after the activity so as not to develop chlorine irritation. It is important to use soothing agents and emollients to keep the skin soft and protected, while trying to use the utmost care both hygienically and cosmetically.
