Kim Kardashian's psoriasis has worsened because of stress over her marriage break-up from Kris Humphries, husband of 72 days.
She was diagnosed with the skin condition, which is believed to be caused by environmental factors and genetics, by a dermatologist in July
"Turning from Beauty into the Beast is Kim's worst fear. The stress of Kris' charge that their marriage was a fraud isn't helping her condition and she fears the crusty red spots caused by her psoriasis will spread," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling National Enquirer magazine.
Not only has the unsightly itchy, flaky, red rash returned, Kim is also in pain with her condition.
"It's very painful, especially when Kim lies in bed at night. She's afraid that her spots will soon cover her body and she has cried over it a few times," he added.
