We learned last on Keeping Up with the Kardashians that Kim Kardashian has skin crud! Now she’s worried that having psoriasis will ruin her career. You can watch her get the diagnosis in the video below.
Psoriasis is a common skin condition that causes red spots on the skin. According to the Mayo Clinic website:
Psoriasis is a common skin disease that affects the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.
Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting (chronic) disease. You may have periods when your psoriasis symptoms improve or go into remission alternating with times your psoriasis worsens.
Even though there isn’t a cure for the disease, the symptoms can be easily treated with cortisone cream, small amounts of sunlight, small amounts of vitamin D (don’t take too much vitamin D though as it causes more harm than good in high doses), avoiding stress and acceptance that life (and our bodies) are not perfect.
That is, of course, unless you are Kim Kardashian who found out she had psoriasis in last night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“Psoriasis? I cannot have psoriasis. My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photoshoots. People don’t understand the pressure on me to be perfect.”
Last night’s episode was filmed in April. Maybe Kim has dealt with her skin disease by now.
Watch the video below to see how Kim Kardashian deals with learning that she has psorias.
