Last week Kim Kardashian was spotted with these red circles on her legs and on last night’s Keeping up with the Kardashians she want to the dermatologist andÂ revealedÂ that she has psoriasis! Well that explains it!
“I’d heard of it before because my mom has always had it, but she didn’t have red flaky dots all over her,” says Kim, 30, about the skin condition.
Mom Kris Jenner was diagnosed with psoriasis when she was 30, too. “There’s a large genetic component,” Dr. Jordana S. Gilman, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC, tells Life & Style. But Kim, who makes an enviable living showing off her skin during photo shoots, worries about the diagnosis. “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect,” she says. “When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines, so imagine what the tabloids will do to me when they see all these spots.”
