LeAnn Rimes shared two nude photos of herself as the country superstar embraces her psoriasis.
In honor of World Psoriasis Day on Thursday, October 29, the singer shared the nude pictures of herself on Instagram that clearly show the psoriasis covering her back.
“Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. But I want to give a voice to these other pieces of me,” she wrote. “And I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like.”
Psoriasis is “a skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, backside and scalp.” Rimes revealed that she was diagnosed with the skin condition when she was just two years old.
“I tried everything I could to treat it: steroid creams, major medications — I even tried being wrapped in coal tar with Saran Wrap,” she recalled in a cover story for Glamour magazine. “And when I was in public, I did I everything I could to hide it.
“Onstage I’d often wear two pairs of pantyhose or jeans — even in 95-degree heat,” Rimes added. “Underneath my shirt, my whole stomach would be covered in thick scales that would hurt and bleed. For so much of my life, I felt like I had to hide.”
