Kim Kardashian shares unfiltered photos of her psoriasis patches, says it's her big flaw...

Kim Kardashian has opened up again about suffering from the skin disorder psoriasis. The reality star, 35, gets unsightly red patches on her skin during flare ups and in particular on her right leg, that 'is the most visible.'
'I don't even really try to cover it that much anymore,' she wrote on her app Wednesday. 'Sometimes I just feel like it's my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?'

Kim was diagnosed with the condition in 2010 and inherited it from her mother Kris Jenner who also suffers from it. There is no cure but, the mom of two tells her fans, she manages it through diet and by getting cortisone shots.

She also applies a cortisone cream every night before she goes to bed.
'Everyone with psoriasis has different symptoms; sometimes the rashes are itchy, sometimes they're flaky. Mine flares up from time to time for different reasons,' she explained.

'I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am.'
The body confident star usually uses used a little concealer to tone down the redness of the dry itchy patches that appear during an outbreak of psoriasis.
