Kim Kardashian West obviously isn’t going to allow her psoriasis stop her from loving her body. The reality star says she’s done with trying to hide the dry, itchy patches she gets from the chronic condition.
“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 West 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.”
