Reality star Kim Kardashian has always been open with her struggles with psoriasis – a condition in which skin cells build up to form scaly, dry and itchy patches – but the mom of three recently revealed her condition has taken a turn for the worse.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star turned to her 59.1 million Twitter followers over the weekend to ask for help, tweeting, “Need help ASAP!!!!”
“I think the time has come I start medication for psoriasis,” Kim shared. “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?”
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.

The mom of three received helpful tips from many of her followers, including several who swear by Neutrogena T/Gel and others who shared their experiences with using prescription medication.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Psoriasis is thought to be an immune system problem that can be triggered by cold, infections, and stress. With Kim busy planning the perfect Christmas and trying to hustle the family together to get that all-important Kardashian Christmas Card shot, stress may have caused her psoriasis to flare up.View this post on Instagram
