None of us really knew what she’s been going through… But now, LeAnn Rimes wants us to know about her struggle with psoriasis – and she’s embracing it in a major way, by sharing a photo of herself… NUDE.
In the Instagram caption, she wrote, quote, “You know when you say something you’ve been holding in for so long, and it’s such a sigh of relief? That’s what these photos are to me. I needed this.”
Rimes is not alone, in her struggle with the skin disorder, as a celebrity. Kim Kardashian has also shared photos of her psoriasis, online. It’s a fairly common chronic, inflammatory skin disease, which is characterized by scaly patches. Cyndi Lauper has opened up, publicly, about her psoriasis; and stars in a TV commercial for one of the treatments.
According to HealthLine.com: “Psoriasis is caused, at least in part, by the immune system mistakenly attacking healthy skin cells. If you’re sick or battling an infection, your immune system will go into overdrive to fight the infection. This might start another psoriasis flare-up. Strep throat is a common trigger.”
