Kim Kardashian Is Struggling with Psoriasis on Her Face
Kim Kardashian is facing a new problem these days.
Though the reality star recently made her triumphant return to social media following a three-month hiatus from the spotlight, she revealed that her psoriasis has spread to her face, leaving itchy and dry patches of skin on her once-flawless visage.
“Wait why am I now getting psoriasis on my face?” Kardashian mused on Twitter on Thursday (Jan. 5, 2017).

Last August, the mom-of-two opened up about her battle with the autoimmune disease. Explaining that she inherited the skin condition from her mother, Kris Jenner, Kardashian shared that she has been struggling with psoriasis since 2010.
“Every few years, I get a cortisone shot to help combat the inflammation from my psoriasis,” she wrote in a post on her app, adding that she also has to avoid acidic foods like tomatoes and eggplant to prevent flare-ups. “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 continued, “I use a topical cortisone ointment every night before bed. 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.”
