Kim Kardashian on Her Psoriasis: 'Why Cover It?'

Kim Kardashian is opening up about her struggle with Psoriasis.

The 35-year-old reality star took to her website to talk about how she’s learned to accept the skin condition.

“Since I was first diagnosed with psoriasis in 2010, I’ve been pretty open about my struggles with it,” Kim wrote. “I have that one patch on my right leg that is the most visible. 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?”

Kim continued, “After this many years, I’ve really learned to live with it. I got it for the first time at the DASH store opening in New York. 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.”
