Kim Kardashian, in a new episode of her family reality show, spoke about the exacerbation of psoriasis, which she has been struggling with for many years. Despite all her efforts, the disease worsened greatly and a large and painful spot appeared on Kim’s leg.
"It's like all over my leg. I don't know what's going on. But I have to figure it out. It's crazy," Kim said, showing off her leg.
According to Kardashian, she does not know what causes the disease to worsen. "I'm not going to lie, it hurts. I don't know what my triggers are. I haven't changed my diet. I've tried everything! Psoriasis sucks," she said. "Usually I just have this spot, but now I can tell it's going down my leg, up my leg and all over my thigh. So it's time to get to the bottom of it."
Kim ironically said that this time the rash on her leg is heart-shaped - in anticipation of the upcoming Valentine's Day.
Kim Kardashian learned about her illness at the age of 25: according to her, she is the only one of her sisters who “inherited” psoriasis from her mother. On the day it first appeared, Kim wore a sequined dress and initially thought it was the material that caused the reaction.
Many stars live with this autoimmune disease: including, for example, Britney Spears and model Cara Delevingne.
