Psoriasis Is Not Alien To Celebrities
Psoriasis is a recurring skin disease that occurs due to overactivity of the immune system which causes skin cells to grow rapidly. The quick multiplication of the skin cells results in the appearance of red, silvery or white thick, flaky and itchy patches on the body. However, it is not just the skin that gets affected by this autoimmune disorder. In many patients, this condition may result in other health issues like diabetes, psoriatic arthritis in joints, or other autoimmune problems.
At times, you may feel like you are the only one that is dealing with this skin problem but it’s completely opposite to what you think. Believe it or not but the fact is – more than 7.5 million people across the United States are struggling with this chronic disease and even the most famous celebrities are not an exception to it. Yes, your favorite stars also experience the same discomfort that is attached to this health problem!
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim who is known for her flamboyant dressing style openly embraces the disorder as she feels that there is no need to hide the flaw as everyone is aware of it.
A fashion stylist by profession, Stacy London expressed her childhood feelings when severe psoriasis made her feel like a ‘monster’.
So is the case with 36-year-old American singer LeAnn Rimes who has had a continuous battle with this skin disease throughout her life.
But the good thing is that psoriasis can be treated with the help of light therapy, steroid creams, occlusion and oral medications along with some changes in the lifestyle that can tranquilize the symptoms. Other than that, working on the stress levels, using good quality makeup and avoiding harsh sun can considerably help in soothing the itchy sensation and scratches.
