Kim Kardashian has tearfully revealed that her incurable psoriasis skin condition has now spread to her face, potentially threatening her very image-based livelihood.
Posting in Twitter, the star wrote, 'Wait why am I now getting psoriasis on my face,' with a tearful emoji.
Previously opening up about having psoriasis on her app KimKardashianWest.com, the 35-year-old reality star said she has been 'pretty open with her struggles' with the condition, which can manifest as red, raw skin and prolific flaking.
'I have that one patch on my right leg that is the most visible,' she wrote, adding, ‘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?’
Psoriasis is an inflammatory disease of the skin, something she inherited from Momager Kris Jenner.
While there isn’t a cure, Kardashian-West says she tries to manage the condition through her diet and by having cortisone shots and applying cream.
'Everyone with psoriasis has different symptoms; sometimes the rashes are itchy, sometimes they're flaky. Mine flares up from time to time for different reasons,' she explained.
'I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am.'
