NYC Dermatologist Dr. Schweiger comments and offers advice on the Kim Kardashian psoriasis diagnosis to US Weekly

Luckily for Kardashian, her case is treatable -- so long as she avoids anything that could stress her out. (Not an easy feat since she's currently planning a huge wedding bash for her nuptials to fiancé Kris Humphries.) "Psoriasis flares up during times of increased stress or illness, so it's important to manage stressors," Dr. Eric Schweiger of Schweiger Dermatology in NYC tells Us Weekly. In addition, Dr. Schweiger says that any form of trauma to the skin (like sunburn of even a scratch) can cause flare-ups. To help treat the pesky skin disorder, Dr. Schweiger recommends using a moisturizer daily to help protect the barrier of the skin. "Your dermatologist can prescribe topical medications like cortisone creams that are easy to apply and can help the psoriasis flare resolve quickly. In severe cases of psoriasis, there are injectable medications called "biologics" and lasers that help to prevent and treat flares."
