Kim Kardashian fires back at reports about her 'bad skin day' & reveals her health issues
Kim Kardashian, best known for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” took to Twitter to respond to her “bad skin day” reports.
One of the principal media outlets that posted an article about Kim’s skin condition was Daily Mail. Not only they called it “bad skin day” on their website but also on Twitter.
They shared photos of the celebrity wearing an all-black ensemble while getting lunch in Los Angeles with Kourtney Kardashian and her ex-partner Scott Disick. The aspect they emphasized, though, was the sort of acne she had on her face.
However, Kim took to Twitter to respond to Daily Mail’s reports saying that it was “psoriasis all over her face,” adding a crying face emoji.
As MayoClinic reported, the life cycle of skin cells in patients with psoriasis is faster than usual, which causes cells to build up quickly on the surface of the skin, creating itchy scales and red patches that sometimes are painful.

Since that illness is chronic, it usually comes and goes, so the treatment consists on trying to stop the skin cells from growing so fast.
It’s psoriasis all over my face. 😢 https://t.co/E94lI7mfDG— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 5, 2019
KIM’S PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES WITH PSORIASIS
Unfortunately, it is not the first time that Kim has had psoriasis. The first time she learned she had that condition was in 2011. During an episode of “KUWTK,” she visited a dermatologist who diagnosed her with it. After that, the illness has appeared and disappeared.
In November 2017, she was in an interview with People wherein she said that she had been using a light therapy that had cleared 60 percent of the condition at that point. Only one month after that interview, she tweeted that her psoriasis was almost gone and that it was the best Christmas present.
I think the time has come I start a medication for psoriasis. I’ve never seen it like this before and I can’t even cover it at this point. It’s taken over my body. Has anyone tried a medication for psoriasis & what kind works best? Need help ASAP!!!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) December 24, 2018
Back in December 2018, Kim revealed on Twitter that she started medication for psoriasis and that it the worst case she had ever faced. The makeup mogul even admitted that she couldn’t cover it. Finally, Kim said that it had “taken over” her body and asked her followers for medication as she needed her “asap.”
ANOTHER HEALTH ISSUE
Sadly, psoriasis is not the only condition that has affected Kim. She also suffered from placenta accreta while being pregnant with North and Saint, meaning that the placenta grows deeply into the uterine wall causing severe blood loss after the delivery.
Since it is considered a high-risk pregnancy complication, Kim decided that she would not get pregnant again, which is the reason she has opted for surrogacy with her third child, Chicago, and her upcoming fourth baby boy.
