Kim Kardashian Diagnosed With Psoriasis

Kim K skin condition

If you've seen any pics of Kim Kardashian with red spots, resembling bug bites, on her skin it's because the reality star has been diagnosed with psoriasis.

While dermatologists say the skin condition is completely manageable with the help of pills, creams, or even injectable medication, it's understandable why someone like Kim — who makes a living off of her appearance — would be worried about the diagnosis.

Citing obvious media scrutiny for her every move, Kim said:

"People don't understand the pressure on me to look perfect. 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."

We can't see it affecting the 30-year-old's career too much because, as it turns out, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, Kris Jenner, was diagnosed with the disease at 30 too and we've never noticed.

According to a leading dermatologist, "if managed properly, it can be kept under control and she can lead a perfectly normal life."

Kim will learn about her condition in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which airs on July 24th.
