Kim Kardashian isn’t a VICTIM to her psoriasis.
The reality star has come clean about the butt injections to combat her skin condition (sure) but she also says she’s done with hiding the dry, itchy patches she gets from her condition and she’s living LOUD and flaky and PROUD. Girl discussed her chronic skin sitch on her app:
“I have that one patch on my right leg that is the most visible,” Kardashian West, 35, says in a post on her app. “I don’t even really try to cover it that much anymore. Sometimes I just feel like it’s my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?”
“After this many years, I’ve really learned to live with it.”
Kardashian first found out that she has psoriasis after visiting a dermatologist on a 2011 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“I got it for the first time at the DASH store opening in New York,” she explains in her post. “I wore this all-sequin dress and I started getting really itchy; I thought it was just a rash caused by the fabric, but then the rash was COVERING my legs and my mom was like, “I think you have psoriasis!!!” She has it too, and it’s hereditary, so she spotted the symptoms immediately.”
Now she knows how to control it, from avoiding acidic foods like tomatoes and eggplant to applying ointments, but she still gets pesky flare ups. Boo hoo, Kim.
“Sometimes the rashes are itchy, sometimes they’re flaky,” she says. “Mine flares up from time to time for different reasons.”
You will survive Kim. You. Will. Survive.
