Kim Kardashian shared new videos of her recent psoriasis flareup.

In a new series of Instagram Stories, the SKKN BY KIM founder, 43, shared a glimpse at the psoriasis flareup on her legs. In the first video, Kardashian showed a close-up of her shin.

“How crazy is my psoriasis right now guys? It’s like all up my leg. I don’t know what’s happening. But I gotta figure this out. This is crazy," she said in the background of the video.

She also captioned the video, "Not gonna lie this is painful. 😖. Not sure what my triggers are. I haven't changed my diet. I've tried everything! Psoriasis sucks."

In the next video, the SKIMS founder tells viewers, “I usually just have this spot, but now I can tell it's going down my leg and up my leg and all up my thigh. So I just know it's time to figure this out.”

"Just wanted to share my journey with you guys," she wrote in the Story.

Kardashian’s final video included the reality star joking about the shape of the psoriasis. She noted for viewers that the flareup resembles a heart.

“Am I tripping? Or is my psoriasis in the shape of a heart for Valentine's Day?” joked the mom of four. “Do you guys see that, kind of right? Like I think I totally see it. And I can see the psoriasis everywhere else.”

“But lucky me, I have a heart-shaped psoriasis for Valentine's Day,” she added.

The Kardashians star recently divulged that she uses her tanning beds as a type of treatment for her condition. Earlier this month, she showed her in-office tanning bed in a TikTok video tour of her SKKN BY KIM office, where she offered her take on the “of course” video trend.

As she reclined in a tanning bed, she said, “I’m Kim Kardashian, of course, I have a tanning bed — and a red light bed — in my office.”

“Please, Kim Kardashian, don’t try to normalize tanning beds,” Allure magazine pleaded with the reality star on X (formerly known as Twitter). “The stats about tanning and cancer are terrifying.”
