Kim Kardashian Has Been Praised For Sharing A Photo Of Psoriasis On Her Face
Kim embraced the condition in a revealing Insta photo.
Kim Kardashian has been super open about her struggles with the skin condition psoriasis, having shared multiple pictures of the patches of dry skin around her body in the past – including on her legs and stomach.
Now, Kim has bared all in an Instagram picture where she shows psoriasis on her face.
On Sunday, the 38-year-old uploaded an photo to Instagram stories which showed the severity of the condition, with various areas of her face – including her chin, cheekbones and forehead – covered in red flaky patches.
The reality star was diagnosed with the skin condition in 2011.
The condition is described as a chronic, systemic, inflammatory skin disorder in which there is an increase in the rate at which skin cells are produced and shed from the skin. It can be treated by topical creams, UV light therapy and also medications.
Back in December, Kim shared that she was considering going down the medication route to treat her psoriasis.
I think the time has come I start a medication for psoriasis. I’ve never seen it like this before and I can’t even cover it at this point. It’s taken over my body. Has anyone tried a medication for psoriasis & what kind works best? Need help ASAP!!!

Fans have responded positively to Kim being so open about the condition, thanking her for coming forward and bringing attention to it.
Thank you @KimKardashian for your openness on dealing with psoriasis. It’s not something that you can just cover up with makeup & move on.

The fact that Kim Kardashian just posted a video on her snap of her psoriasis all over her face makes me feel less disgusting about my psoriasis.

Fans have also been leaving suggestions for the mother-of-three on how to treat her dry patches.
Have you tried green tea for your psoriasis? A friend of mine drinks it and puts the tea bags on the worse patches. Really shrinks them!!
