New Delhi: Socialite Kim Kardashian has been diagnosed with psoriasis, say media reports.
Being a socialite and in perpetual media glare, the red marks on her skin sent gossips flying. The Life and Style Weekly called it the skin condition called psoriasis.
The skin condition is marked by red or white patches on the skin which are often flaky. The condition is not contagious.
According to the report, Kim’s mother Kris Jenner also suffers from the condition, which is characterized by dry skin. Kardashian said to the media that she has heard of the skin condition because her mother has always had it, but she did not have red flaky dots all over.
The disease has a largely genetic component involved in it. The condition, as doctors say – is manageable with a variety of treatments available. If properly taken care of doctors say that psoriasis patients have a perfectly normal life.
Kim’s thoughts on the condition will be featured in an upcoming episode of her reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians’. With her wedding around the corner, it would be interesting to know how she deals with the diagnosis.
