Kim says that, after a cortisone shot from a dermatologist, her psoriasis "completely went away for about five years." However, it then came back a few years ago in her early thirties, which is when Kim says her "real psoriasis journey began."

Kim continues, saying: "For the past eight years, although the spots are unpredictable, I can always count on my main spot on my right lower leg, which consistently stays flared up.

"I have learned to live with this spot without using any creams or medication—I just deal. Sometimes I cover it up and sometimes I don’t. It doesn’t really bother me."

She adds: "When I got pregnant both times, it fully went away. That was amazing, but then it came back again. Earlier this year is when it got extremely bad—it covered my whole face and a majority of my entire body."

Kim then explains how she got diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, saying: "One night, I woke up to use the restroom and I physically couldn’t pick up my phone."
