The condition occurs when skin cells pile up on the skin鈥檚 surface causing patches of inflammation and redness. 鈥淎fter having had it for over seven years, I feel like I鈥檝e accepted it, but there are still times when I can feel insecure about it,鈥 Kardashian West says in a recent post on her app.

But she does have a support network. 鈥淢y mom has psoriasis too (it鈥檚 hereditary), so she鈥檚 helped me learn how to live with and treat the disease,鈥 writes the reality star. Because there is no cure, she鈥檚 turned to a number of different experimental methods 鈥 and some are pretty kooky. 鈥淥ne time, I even tried using Kourt鈥檚 breast milk, lol!鈥 she admitted.

But some treatments have been more effective than others. 鈥淭hings I鈥檝e tried that do help are following a low-acid diet, cortisone shots, topical cortisone creams and seaweed-based skincare products,鈥 write the 36-year-old.

鈥淲hen I was first diagnosed with psoriasis, a dermatologist suggested that I get a cortisone shot to combat inflammation. I鈥檝e found that this treatment works really well,鈥 she says. But in case you don鈥檛 have that reality show money for a derm visit every time there鈥檚 a flare up, you can also pick up one of her treatments at the drugstore. 鈥淓very night, I also use a topical cortisone cream. This eases irritation and reduces redness on the skin,鈥 she adds.

鈥淎s a skincare ingredient, seaweed has amazing anti-inflammatory properties,鈥 says Kardashian West. 鈥淸It鈥檚] also extremely high in moisture, which is great for those suffering from psoriasis, as the disease tends to dry out the skin. Seaweed is so soothing too 鈥 I use it to treat spots that are especially irritating, red or flakey.鈥
