Do you have eczema? Then you have even more reasons to exercise than others.

One of the causes of an eczema flare-up is attributed to stress. A child or teenager may try to find ways to reduce the amount of stress he or she experiences. A great stress reducer is exercise. Not only can exercise help reduce stress, but it can also alleviate the disastrous impact of bullying on the mind, body, and soul.

Types of Exercise

When a child or teenager is interested in exercising, there are several different routines that can help that person stay happy and fit. Walking, gardening, and bicycling are great ways to get some exercise and to indulge in the fresh air too. Games that include running and jumping can get the heart pumping, and eliminate stress. Also, don't pass up a chance to jump in the pool now and then to swim, or do yoga to help battle an eczema flare-up.


Excessive sweating can affect the skin during an eczema flare-up. After showering, pat the skin dry and make sure to put moisturizer on the skin. Clothing with wicking material has been designed to absorb excess sweat during exercise and it won't irritate the skin.


Besides being good for you, exercise can help reduce stress by releasing endorphins which help ease pain as well as make you feel good. Exercise helps raise the body's self-esteem level, and can prevent a child or teen from being depressed about the stress related to the eczema. Exercise plays an important role in the prevention of developing problems that impact overall health and wellness.  By not engaging any type of exercise can begin the start of:

  • Increased weight
  • Less muscle tone
  • Pressure on muscles and joints
  • Changes in dietary habits
  • Breathing problems that could turn into asthma or issues with the heart
  • Decrease in self-esteem
  • Unable to deal with higher levels of stress

Partner Up

Taking a bike ride, a brisk walk around a neighborhood, and going hiking on a trail are great ways to exercise. However, it can be more fun if you have a buddy to keep up the pace with you. Find a friend who likes to exercise, as they can be a source of encouragement to get you motivated to reach your fitness goals.
