Kim Kardashian's Divorce Is Worsening Her Psoriasis

Kim Kardashian Psoriasis

Kim Kardashian isn't just getting bad press thanks to her failed marriage to Kris Humphries — she may be getting worse psoriasis outbreaks on her skin too!

The reality star was diagnosed with the skin disease this past summer, but sources say her condition may be worsening as a result of the stress from her divorce drama. One insider close to her has said:

“Turning from ‘Beauty’ into the ‘Beast’ is Kim’s worst fear. The stress of Kris’ charge that their marriage was a fraud isn’t helping her condi­tion, and she fears the crusty red spots caused by her pso­riasis will spread.”

Dr. Rebecca Baxt, a New Jersey-based board certified der­matologist, backed up the correlation, explaining:

“The exact mecha­nism of stress causing psoriasis to flare is not completely understood, but the link is well ac­cepted. Certainly, a quick mar­riage and divorce could raise anyone’s stress lev­els and aggravate their psoriasis."

The red skin irritation from the chronic auto­immune disease has been limited to Kim's legs and stomach. While Kim has openly expressed her vanity concerns on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the insider reveals psoriasis is "painful" too, saying:

"It’s very painful, especially when Kim lies in bed at night. She’s afraid that the spots will soon cover her body and has cried over it a few times.”

Ugh! Stay positive, gurl! Yes, the marriage was a mistake, but all you can do is focus on moving forward with your life.

Do yourself a favor and don't let all that stress get to you. Think of all the positives in your life like your family, friends, and massive multi-million dollar fortune! Ha!
