Kim Kardashian has been struggling with psoriasis for seven years now. She revealed that among the many treatments she tried to cure it might have also been her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s breast milk.
The incurable condition comes with a flaky, itchy rash that makes your skin sore, red and blotchy.
Kim said that she was diagnosed with this health condition back in 2010 and she has been trying ever since to treat it.
She told her fans via her app all about this struggle of hers and how desperate she has been trying to find a cure.
‘After having had it for over seven years, I feel like I’ve accepted it, but there are still times when I can feel insecure about it,’ Kim confessed.
She has learned how to deal with the disease from her mother, Kris Jenner who also suffers from it. “She’s helped me learn how to live with and treat” it, Kim said of the hereditary illness.
‘She’s helped me learn how to live with and treat’ it, Kim said of the hereditary illness.
‘I’ve tried some basic treatment methods, but I’m always open to trying new things,’ Kim wrote.
Kim wasn’t joking, and she admitted that ‘One time, I even tried using [Kourtney Kardashian]’s breast milk, lol!’
‘Things I’ve tried that do help are following a low-acid diet, cortisone shots and topical cortisone creams.’
Kourtney Kardashian is also a mother, though she’s been raising kids for a little longer than Kim, so maybe Kimmy tried Kourt’s milk while she was breastfeeding?
‘A newer treatment that I’ve started is using seaweed-based beauty products,’ Kim said of her other remedies.
‘As a skincare ingredient, seaweed has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It is also extremely high in moisture, which is great for those suffering from psoriasis, as the disease tends to dry out the skin. Seaweed is so soothing, too. I use it to treat spots that are especially irritating, red or flakey.’
