Thanks to her high-profile celebrity marriage, multimillion-dollar endorsement deals, and a closet full of more couture than you or I will ever see in our lifetime, Kim Kardashian may not exactly be the most relatable person in the world. 

But every now and then, she shares snapshots that show she's just like the rest of us — well, sort of. On Monday, she took to Instagram to post new photos of her psoriasis flare-ups. She captioned one of the images: "Psoriasis is the shits." 

Kardashian has been pretty open about her ongoing struggle with the skin condition, which causes itchy red spots that can be burdensome to deal with and cover up. Many fans responded to Kardashian's posts positively, and expressed their appreciation that she was being so candid about her condition.

Kim Kardashian has struggled with psoriasis throughout most of her career.

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, psoriasis is "an immune-mediated disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin." It can sometimes cause itchy, burning, or stinging sensations. 

She's dealt with some pretty bad flare-ups recently.

Back in December, she said that "the time has come" to begin taking medication for the condition. She added that she "can't even cover it at this point."

Just last week, she responded to a tweet from a tabloid that said she was suffering from a "bad skin day."

One fan chimed in: "This is why I can’t be famous, you literally cannot be human." Another added: "Do not let the media shake you. My mom has psoriasis, it took her a long time to accept it and not let the opinions of others shake her."

Kardashian was officially diagnosed with the condition back in 2011.

Naturally, the whole thing was documented on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It was a very emotional experience for the reality TV star.

In 2017, she told People that she had been using light therapy that seemed to be working.

“I have been using this light — and I don’t wanna speak to soon because [the psoriasis] is almost gone — but I’ve been using this light [therapy] and my psoriasis is like 60 percent gone,” Kardashian told the publication. “That’s wild because it hasn’t been gone in years.”

Unfortunately, it seems like things have worsened since then.

While the light therapy may have worked for a while, she's been having more flare-ups lately. But she's not being shy about her struggle.

On Monday, she shared a few images of her latest flare-ups on Instagram.

The selfie shows her laying in bed with a dark colored herbal ointment on her face. “Psoriasis is the shits!" she captioned the photo, complete with a laugh-cry emoji.

In the next image, she reveals a flare-up on one of her legs.

There are several red spots up and down her leg. "Sexy," she wrote alongside the photo.

Many fans appreciated the fact that she's been so honest about her struggle with the skin condition.

This person wants to share their knowledge with Kardashian. Apparently they found some creams that "actually worked." Are you listening, Kim?! 

She's making people feel less alone.

Celebrities are rarely easy to relate to. But in this case, Kardashian proves that even with all their money and access, there isn't always a simple solution.

One person said that Kardashian's latest disclosure about psoriasis is "admirable."

Can we get more relatable content like this, please? It's what the people deserve.

It's always reassuring to remember that no one is perfect. Not even a Kardashian.

The struggle is real, folks. But we're all in this together.

Plus, her experiences are raising awareness about how pervasive psoriasis really is.

She's using her platform for good. And considering her serious social media following, that's always something we can applaud.

In conclusion, psoriasis is not fun, but it's not something you have to deal with on your own.

If Kim K can get through it, so can you! Celebrities: They really are just like us.
