When we all thought Kim Kardashian was the picture of perfection, the Sunday night episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” revealed we were wrong. Kim Kardashian went to visit a dermatologist and was told she has psoriasis. The red, scaly, unsightly spots were on her stomach and legs, Kim was worried about her spots showing up in a commercial she was making for Skechers Shape Ups.
The condition is hereditary as Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner also has psoriasis, along with another 7.5 million Americans. Psoriasis is not curable, but is treatable. Dr. Emmy Graber, the dermatologist, looked at Kim’s psoriasis condition and felt her case was brought on by excessive stress, and looked like “guttate”, the kind that spreads quickly over the body. The doctor advised Kim Kardashian to slow-down her pace, which may help re-occurrences of the psoriasis.
Kim said there is a lot of pressure on her to look perfect and that she cannot have psoriasis. The doctor did mention that in many cases of this type of psoriasis, it may not reappear after treatment. There are other celebrities with this condition, but they have learned to hide it well, look at LeAnn Rimes. Kim Kardashian will have to learn to hide her psoriasis or maybe become the spokesperson for the disease.
