38 year old Kim Kardashian repeatedly openly told fans about his struggle with psoriasis, with whom she has been living for more than ten years. Recently, the star again raised this topic in a large essay, which was published on the website of her older sister Courtney. In this appeal, Kim talked about how she first learned about this diagnosis, and about the consequences of the disease.
I am the only child in the family to whom my mother inherited this disease. I was 25 years old when I first had an outbreak of psoriasis. Then I had a common cold, which provoked the appearance of this autoimmune disease. Then spots generously covered my stomach and legs,

Then Kim immediately turned to a dermatologist who lived in the neighborhood, and he helped to quickly stop the disease. However, five years later, psoriasis returned:
I was wearing a sequin dress. I remember I came home in it and felt an itch all over my body. Then I thought that it was just a reaction of my skin to the fabric from which the dress was made. However, this was not the case. Mom saw spots on my body and said that it was definitely psoriasis. It was then that my life began with this disease.
Kim admitted that at first she was very shy about the manifestations of psoriasis, but at some point she realized that no use hiding what she has to live with every day.
According to Kardashian, recently the disease worsened – Now spots appear not only on the legs and stomach, but also on her face.
At the beginning of this year, things got worse. Spots covered my face and most of my body. However, after so many years, I really learned how to live with it,
– admitted Kim.
Recently, Kardashian was really scared for her health. At some point, she woke up and felt severe pain and weakness in her hands that she could not even pick up the phone to answer the call. Soon, Kim went to the doctor and passed tests, the results of which revealed her rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Fortunately, it later turned out that the result was false positive. After re-checking the doctors put Kim correct diagnosis – psoriatic arthritis, which is a complication of her basic diagnosis.
Kim Kardashian noted that since then she has begun to carefully monitor her health and follow all the recommendations of doctors. Now she uses natural ointments, creams and serums, which she prescribed a dermatologist.
In addition, Kim is treated from the inside: he follows a vegetable diet, drinks herbal tea, celery juice and special smoothies from sea moss. In addition, Kardashian minimized stress in her life, which also exacerbates the condition of psoriasis.
