It actually works! Maybe this is the remedy to Kim’s problems but will she have to keep stealing it?
Kim Has Battled Psoriasis A Long Time
On Keeping Up With The Kardashians we saw Kim go to the doctor to try and find a solution to the red bumps on her legs and the doctor told her she had psoriasis.
When Kim learned she had it she said: “Psoriasis? I cannot have psoriasis. My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photoshoots. People don’t understand the pressure on me to be perfect.”
What Is Psoriasis?
It is a skin disease that can be caused by many factors: dry air, over-consumption of alcohol, too little or too much sunlight, and viral infections. But we told you that the biggest factor is stress, which at the time Kim was going through a lot with her initial divorce with Kris Humphries.
At the time Dr. Howard Sobel, a cosmetic dermatologist in NYC says: “[Psoriasis] occurs in 1 to 3 percent of the population, it’s fairly common. It’s a condition where there’s an an increase accumulation of dead skin cells that cause inflammation and a silvery scale. It’s very common in certain areas: elbows, knees, in your groin area, and often on the buttock.”
