Kim Kardashian Copes With Psoriasis and the Pressure to Look Perfect

Kim Karadashian has Psoriasis, a diagnosis she, understandably, isn't happy about, since her career involves "doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots."

Kim was seen visiting her dermatologist with itchy red patches that her sister Khloe thought were caused by ringworms duing Sunday night's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Her doctor's Psoriasis diagnosis sure proved Khole wrong, but brought no cheer to Kim.

While Kim didn't know what a ringworm infection is, she did know what Psoraisis is; her mother Kris Jenner has the incurable but treatable condition.

Kim's condition is more severe.

"My mom didn't have red flaky dots all over her," she says.

And her disappointment large.

"My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots. People don't understand the pressure on me to look perfect," she says.

"When I gain a pound, it's in the headlines," he adds. "Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots!"
