Kim Kardashian opens up about her ongoing struggle with psoriasis, sharing raw and candid videos that depict the 'painful' flare-up she's currently experiencing.
Taking to her Instagram stories on Tuesday, The Kardashians star offered a sneak peek into the psoriasis flare-up affecting her legs.
The initial video displayed a close-up of Kardashian's shin.
Kim,43, said in the background of the video, “How crazy is my psoriasis right now guys? It’s like all up my leg. I don’t know what’s happening. But I gotta figure this out. This is crazy.”
She captioned the video, "Not gonna lie this is painful. Not sure what my triggers are. I haven't changed my diet. I've tried everything! Psoriasis sucks."
In the next video, the SKKN by Kim went on to say, “I usually just have this spot, but now I can tell it's going down my leg and up my leg and all up my thigh. So I just know it's time to figure this out.”
She penned the caption for her story, "Just wanted to share my journey with you guys,"
In her last video, the mother of four playfully commented on the appearance of the psoriasis, humorously pointing out that the flare-up has taken on the shape of a heart.
Kim added, “Am I tripping? Or is my psoriasis in the shape of a heart for Valentine's Day?” she quipped, “Do you guys see that, kind of right? Like I think I totally see it. And I can see the psoriasis everywhere else.”
“But lucky me, I have a heart-shaped psoriasis for Valentine's Day,” she added.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently shared that she utilizes tanning beds as a form of therapy for her condition.
In a TikTok video tour of her SKKN BY KIM office earlier this month, she showcased her in-office tanning bed and participated in the "of course" video trend.
Allure magazine appealed to the reality star on X (previously Twitter), “Please, Kim Kardashian, don’t try to normalize tanning beds,” adding, The stats about tanning and cancer are terrifying.”
Subsequently, Kardashian retweeted Allure's post and defended her utilization of tanning beds in her response, “I have psoriasis and it really helps when it’s bad. But I don’t use it too often.”
