Celebrity psoriasis sufferers

Skin conditionsPsoriasis is a fairly common though little known skin condition that can cause sufferers acute embarrassment or even distress. So it may be reassuring to know that there are famous sufferers amongst us too, who are able to cover up and also manage the condition.

Kim Kardashian was famously diagnosed with the skin disorder on her reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” last year and as a result has helped to increase understanding and awareness of the condition.

Another sufferer to bring it to the fore in recent years is American country singer LeAnn Rimes, who joined a public awareness campaign in the U.S in 2008 entitled ‘Stop Hiding, Start Living’. Art Garfunkel, of pop duo Simon and Garfunkel has also suffered for many years.

Other sufferers include ex-pop star and theatre star Jason Donovan, author, comedian and playwright Ben Elton, and American author John Updike.

Stalin was also apparently a psoriasis sufferer however it’s unlikely he’ll be remembered for that fact…

Whilst psoriasis is not curable it is possible to manage the condition using a variety of creams or treatments.
