Kim Kardashian looks creepy after applying herbal ointment to treat psoriasis flare-up

TV personality Kim Kardashian, best known for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” shared on her Instagram stories a photo showing an herbal ointment treatment for her psoriasis.

In the now-deleted post, Kim appeared wearing a white sleeveless shirt lying on a bed with some black marks on her face. On the photo, she wrote, “psoriasis is the [expletive]."

Before people started creating rumors about it, she set clear in the next post that it was “just herbal ointment.” 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.


Unfortunately for Kim, she has been suffering from psoriasis for a while now. Daily Mail, a popular media outlet, even called her problem a “bad skin day,” what drove Kim to respond them on Twitter saying that it was actually the previously mentioned medical condition.

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.

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.”


The reality star confirmed that she and her husband, Kanye West, were expecting another baby via surrogacy and even revealed the gender.

She made the big announcement during an episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” when the host directly ask her if another baby would join the family. Apart from confirming the news, she said, “It’s a boy.”

Kim even shared a fun fact about it. During her family’s Christmas Eve party, she was so drunk that she revealed the news to some of the guests. Kim cannot remember whom she told, though.
