Us Weekly reports that Schroeder publicly addressed her problem with psoriasis in April 2017 while appearing on an episode of The Doctors. She told a dermatologist that she’d seen a number of doctors, but was given different answers. Steroid creams have helped the autoimmune skin disease that had also affected her back. Breakouts on her face were “the worst” and the condition worsened when she was stressed.
The Straight Up with Stassi podcast host added that anytime she had red wine at night, she’d wake up the next morning fearing a flare-up was on its way. When she filmed Vanderpump Rules last year, it was a tough season, which made the psoriasis particularly bad. In her words, she felt “ugly” and “unattractive.” Somehow she managed and looked great on-screen in spite of the unsightly skin condition.
Stassi Schroeder has expressed interest in pursuing injections that may help treat the psoriasis issue in an effort to reduce inflammation and redness.
