Kim Kardashian Psoriasis - Kim Kardashian worries about how psoriasis will affect her modeling career.

The reality television personality recently ate lunch with her mom and manager Kris Jenner at Stanley’s in Sherman Oaks, CA in order to discuss Kim’s horrific skin problems.

Of course, it was being filmed for their reality show, so it was more than your average conversation about skin issues and flaw is more stress than she can imagine.

Kardashian’s reaction to her dermatologist as he revealed to her that she has psoriasis was, “It’s just not possible.”

“My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots,” the 30-year-old model explained on the episode. “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect.”

Kardashion added, “When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines. Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots?”

Luckily, for the rest of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ crew, the autoimmune disease psoriasis isn’t contagious. However, unluckily for Kim psoriasis has been linked to an increased risk of stroke.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” season 7 will air in 2012; however, the E! network has not announced the exact date.
