Kim Kardashian Wedding: Kim Kardashian Diagnosed With Psoriasis

On Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians viewers watched as Kim Kardashian was diagnosed with psoriasis. Kim sought the opinion of her dermatologist after she saw flaky red patches on her legs. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder in which skin cells experience rapid growth, resulting in thick silvery scale and dry itchy patches of skin.

Her doctor, Dr. Harold Lancer explained the condition to Kim as well as the types of treatment. Treatment generally includes cream and ointments for moderate cases of psoriasis but if the condition gets worse treatments might include injections, ultraviolet lasers that slow skin growth or medications can be taken orally.

The headline “Kim Kardashian Diagnosed With Psoriasis” might drum up some interest in the celeb news, but what causes it might be something the general public wants to know. Many experts agree that celebrities often develop psoriasis because one of the causes is high levels of stress and being under large amounts of pressure. Kim Kardashian has been very public about the amount of wedding stress and pressure that is on her to always look good. Psoriasis can also be passed down through generations Kim’s mother, too, developed and was diagnosed with the disorder when she was 30 years old. Other factors that can trigger outbreaks include viral infections, obesity, smoking and alcohol consumption. Kim Kardashian’s wedding however will  surely not be affected by her psoriasis.
