Reddit users believe they’ve cracked the code behind Kim’s conservative outfit, theorizing her psoriasis is to blame.

“THEORY: Kim wears clothes and gloves to hide her psoriasis,” the original poster wrote alongside a collage of snaps of the star’s psoriasis flare.

The post drew a slew of comments from other like-minded people.

“Hmm now I think, what if she wore all that black outfit to the 2021 Met Gala because she had a bad case of psoriasis?” a person interviewed.

“I said that,” agreed a second.

“I thought it was common knowledge / everyone thought it since her outfit at the Met last year. She even wears gloves in the glamorous interviews on the show,” said another.

However, others weren’t convinced by the theory or her outfit choices.

“Long dress, long sleeves, long pants, tights. Literally anything can cover it up. Batman costumes are not necessary,” one fan remarked.

“No, real pants, socks and shoes hide it very well,” added another.

Meanwhile, some critics thought Kim’s head-to-toe ensembles might be doing more harm than good by “irritating” her skin condition.

“I have psoriasis too and covering it up for sure makes it worse. Body makeup irritates it too,” one commented.

I sometimes forget that she has it. I will say enclosing patches of psoriasis in sweaty spandex is definitely contradictory,” echoed another.


The 41-year-old has been open about her battle with psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red, itchy, scaly patches.

Breakouts most commonly occur on the knees, elbows, trunk, and scalp.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum revealed she started treating psoriasis in her mid-twenties.

In an article for her sister Kourtney’s Poosh brand, Kim wrote, “When I was 25, I had my first flare up of psoriasis.

“I caught a cold, and since psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, it triggered it. It was all over my stomach and legs.

She continued: “Fortunately, in my apartment complex at the time, my neighbor was a dermatologist. I showed it to him, and he said to come to the office, and he would give me a cortisone shot, and then I hope it goes away (since it was my first big outbreak).

“I did, and my psoriasis was completely gone for about five years.”

Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, 66, also has psoriasis, although Kim is her only child to inherit the condition.

Kim explained in Poosh’s story that her psoriasis returned in her early 30s.


The SKIMS mogul – who shares four children with ex-husband Kanye West, 44 – noted that her skin had cleared during her pregnancies.

She wrote: “When I got pregnant both times it completely disappeared.

“It was unbelievable, but then it came back.”

Kim shared many photos on Instagram that showed her outbreaks on her face and legs.

She even reflected on the condition through her now-defunct app.

According to Glamour, the beauty mogul wrote in 2016, “Sometimes rashes are itchy, sometimes they’re scaly.

“Mine breaks out from time to time for different reasons…Scientists are constantly researching and developing new drugs to help treat it, but for now I use topical cortisone ointment every night before I go. to sleep.

“I’m still hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime I’m learning to accept it as part of who I am.”


Then in 2018, Kim shared her plans to take psoriasis medication.

She wrote about Twitter“I think it’s time to start psoriasis medication. I’ve never seen it like this before and I can’t even cover it at this point. It’s taken over my body. Someone has- Tried any psoriasis medication and what type works best? Need help ASAP!!!”

Kim continued to update fans on the breakouts and even shared unedited selfies in 2019.

After photos of Hulu’s personality leaked in 2019, many fans noticed that she appeared to be covering up spots on her face with makeup.

While an outlet wrote that Kim was having a bad skin day, the reality star corrected in a Tweeter : “It’s psoriasis all over her face.”

She then took to her Instagram story to share a photo of her face covered in red spots.

Kim captioned the snap: “Psoriasis face.”

Then in a September 2019 episode of KUWTK, Kim revealed that she had been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis.

She wrote in her story Poosh, “It’s similar to arthritis that can come from psoriasis and can come and go.

“It’s still painful and scary, but I was happy to have a diagnosis. No matter what autoimmune disease I had, I was going to get through it, and they’re all manageable with proper care.”
