On last night's episode Kim K had red itchy, big bumps all over her legs and stomach. She went to the Dr to be told it was Psoriasis. Needless to say she was very upset at first bc she makes money off of her body, ie modeling, pics, ect.

Her mother has it as well, and got it at the same age 30. She really seemed to have it pretty bad in the episode. Here is a pic, but it was worse in the episode.

I hope she can be a spokesperson to call awerness to all those with Psoriasis, as it can be horrible for people. I know some ppl who have it, and they have been teased bc ppl think it is AIDS, or god knows what. You would be surprised at how little some ppl know about it.

Here is a link to the show:

Watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online (TV Show) - Watch TV Online, Free TV - Season 6 and Episode 6

Putlocker is the best link its FREE

i just watched the episode today, and saw this. i can understand her freaking out, because going to events and stuff, its not easy to cover up, since most of the time she shows skin, and its her body that makes money. high stress also can cause trigger it, and with her lifestyle, thats kind of hard to avoid.

That shows you just how Stupid people can be to make fun of something like this
.

I use to wo with a woman years ago that had this and was so surprised how members would stare at her. She use to lay in the tanning beds because it seemed to make it better.

I'm sorry for anybody who receives a diagnosis like this, but since they put it on TV, I'm sceptical. Anything for media attention, etc. etc. Anyway, not to sound harsh, but with all her money, I'm sure they'll find a treatment that elimates the problem. At least she's rich. It would be worse if she wasn't, believe me.

Interesting, wonder what all is causing it. Auto immune reaction? Stress? Poor Kimmie K, she has bumps on her legs. That's gotta suck.

I had some spots on my skin in my late 20's and was diagnosed with psoriasis, it is a autoimmune disease with no cure. I consider myself lucky that I don't get it on my face and rarely do I get break outs that cannot be managed. LeAnn Rimes, Phil Mickelson and other celebrities have this disease. Kim is beautiful regardless, not a fan but I consider her to be a beautiful woman

You know, not to sound harsh, but hopefully the experience will take her down a notch or two, and she realizes that the beauty that she was blessed with must not be taken for granted. Perhaps she will for once understand the pangs of feeling truly physically ugly. Maybe she will undergo the same powerful emotions that young girls today are so engulfed in with regards to feeling ugly. Maybe she will understand that her beauty is one of her assets, not her only asset, and maybe she will understand what it feels like to be ordinary.

Food for thought.

Doesn't her mother have it? So it would be hereditary in her case. Maybe this will be a good thing for psoriasis suffers everythwere. With Kim K. getting this it will become a high profile disease, get lots of media exposure, become incorporated into Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV show, and you gotta know Kim will set up a special webpage, host a telethon, or some kind of fund raiser for the disease; I believe the outcome will be positive one.

I know, hopefully shes smart enough to bring awareness to that family of skin disorders, like dermatitis, eczema, and if she ever hears about it, icthyosis. They are all very similar in symptoms but each disorder harbors unique characteristics. Its important that awareness is brought upon a wide scale of these types of disorders because many suffer in silence and many are ignorant to them. Its not easy to deal with....

I think just showing it on KUWTK show brought awareness to the disorder. I hope she follows up with being a spokesperson for it!

FYI Leeann Rimes also has it!

My mother is covered head to toe and has been for many years. She is scarred beyond belief. It is also important to note that it DOES reach inside. It causes an arthritis caused by the disease/illness. I also have a nephew on my DH's side that has Down's Syndrome/Diabetes/and Psoriasis. He suffers so much at 26 years old. They have never been able to get any kind of lasting relief. Remission seems to be un-achievable at this point.
Just a bit of experience. It is horrible and scary for anyone who experiences it.
KK is only a human after all. She's NOT and OBJECT and if you have not walked in someone's shoes, time to bow out of the unsolicited comments that are hurtful.

Only personal thoughts on this subject and general caution against any negativity.

I completely doubt she would do such a thing, see post above.

It is ALWAYS nice to see someone get relief. However there is NO cure and even if she is blessed with a reprieve/remission, she will now that those are short days. My mom has had both the ebs and flows.
No matter our sature or wealt in live, we can ALL suffer the same diseases.
I have ALWAYS been careful not to demean her in any way. I do know it is hereditary and have lived in fear of one day developing this devastating disease. My mother's face is even covered and she had to leave her work due to employers not wanting a "freak show" in the front office.

However, it is ALWAYS positive to bring awareness to something that SHOULD have a cure but DOES NOT.

Well she probably isn't doing this for fake, but she's definitely going to milk it for what it is worth. Don't forget Kim Kardashian has NO TALENT.

She's the same fame as Paris Hilton, and where is she after 30?

this woman name Nicole has 10 times more talent than Kim and resembles ‪Nicole Scherzinger - Whatever You like [live]‬‏ - YouTube

Kim has 3-4 yrs left of limelight, and she will fade.
She is a smart business woman and has millions of dollars. She is a brand she may not have talent to act singer dance but she does in business! Also her show is Tge highest rated on E! Also before any of the fame she was a celebrity stylist and closet designer. I respect that talent or not

Her mother, Kris Jenner, is the brains of the Kardashians. I think she'll point Kim in the right direction as to how to handle this to gain the most profit from it. Let's face it, the Kardashians have built successful careers and an empire based solely upon, what? Great plastic surgery?
