Kim Kardashian Gets Diagnosed With Psoriasis After Dermatologist Appointment

Kim Kardashian Suffers From Psoriasis Due To Stress

On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which was screened recently in the US, Kim Kardashian visits a dermatologist to find out what a rash appearing on her lower legs could be. After eliminating ringworm (sister Khloé's theory), the doctor diagnoses the reality starlet with psoriasis, a skin condition which her mum, Kris Jenner, also suffers from. Upon hearing that the condition can be influenced by stress and travel, and that it's treatable but not curable, Kim panics and starts to question how the skin problem will affect her career. "People don't understand the pressure on me to look perfect... Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots?" The dermatologist suggests Kim lead a "slower-paced life" to control the condition. While we can't all sympathise with Kim's pressures to look 'perfect', we can relate to stress playing havoc with our skin. Do you feel sorry for Kim?
