Hi @A MyEczemaTeam Member - these are all great questions! Everyone is different. For me personally, I do find that eating high consumption of sugar or processed foods heightens my symptoms. Sweat can make my skin itchy, but I make sure I pat dry it off while I'm working out. I also stem away from doing high intensity workouts that will have me sweat a lot and more so focus on heavy weight training and walking at a moderate pace to keep my heart rate up and consistent. I will workout indoors or out doors depending on the weather and how much skin is doing. I normally tend to stay away from being outside during hot summer days! Hope this helps.

I only have sugars from fruits and veggies and I have horrible excema. There's no magic solution. For some it's dairy, others it's metals. Others have been told and eliminated their allergens and still no improvement. Some say it's internal gut, liver, kidney and lymphtic system bad health and to buy their cleanses. But I rarely see results on their studies, like true research by an independent source. When I was oozing places, excercise and heat were horrible. Now that I'm healing, the endorphines and movement help me.

Many mental health experts believe most skin disorders are neuro-psychosomatic.
There may be some truth to this because stress makes my symptoms worse.
Also sleep quality is another reason to stay stress free, Exercise relieves tensions and may explain why my conditions lessen with more exercise.
I don't take any pharma products , not even aspirin. So I can rule out drug interaction.
