A skin condition? Kim Kardashian? Surely, she can’t be serious! Yes she is, in fact, the gorgeous Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian claims she does suffer from an itchy skin condition. Just when a gal should be looking her best for her upcoming wedding, Kim now has something else to contend with, but what is it? We’ve got the inside scoop so keep reading!
Kim Kardashian was out and about a few days and folks seemed quick to notice some red blotches, similar to bug bites, on her legs. After a media frenzy, Kim Kardashian spoke with Life and Style Magazine and revealed that she was not bite bugs, but she actually suffers from psoriasis. Psoriasis is a common skin condition that causes skin redness and irritation as well as flakiness and itchy spots. Kim Kardashian also revealed that her mom suffers from it as she told the magazine: “I’d heard of it before because my mom has always had it, but she didn’t have red flaky dots all over her.”
Doctors have informed Kim Kardashian that it is in the genetics, but Kim worries about her diagnosis as she said: “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect. When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines, so imagine what the tabloids will do to me when they see all these spots.” Doctors also told Life and Style Magazine that Kim’s condition is treatable by cream, pills or other treatments and she can live a completely normal life. Well, that is good news – and don’t worry Kim, we think you are gorgeous with or without red spots!
