Unfortunately, because of media that acts like all she has to offer is her body, and not her book, or her business sense (I could go on, but that’s a different story altogether), Kim K’s butt has been under speculation since she came into our lives ~all those years ago~ and we finally have an answer.

She does 100% get butt injections. But it isn’t because of the reason we’ve wondered about.

According to Perez Hilton, the star opened up about her body issues during a live stream yesterday, and we learned that her butt injections actually have very little to do with her butt.

So what’s up with the injections?

 “Every few years I get a cortisone shot,” Kim Kardashian said of the shot she gets into her butt. “I just got one as my psoriasis was so bad in Vegas.”

We feel so guilty for ever doubting her. That’s so awful!

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, the disease is actually a pretty huge deal.

1. People with psoriasis are more likely to be depressed than those without it.

This alone proves that this isn’t something to be ignored, and makes us feel a *wee* bit guilty for remaining oh-so-curious about Kim K’s rumored but injections. Sorry Kim!

2. It can seriously impact your career.

Because it can require you to take a few days off of work, it isn’t always easy to work into your day-to-day work life. Many of us can’t just excuse ourselves from the office for days at a time, so many people are forced to sit there in agony and try to get ish done.

3. It’s pretty much torture.

Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, a recognized itch expert, says, “Itch is present in between 70 and 90 percent of psoriasis patients, yet it is only in the last decade that it has been recognized as a common symptom of the disease.” Imagine living with a major itch that you just cannot scratch. Talk about frustrating, and seriously exhausting.

4. There’s a wide range of ways to deal with psoriasis.

The National Psoriasis Foundation says common treatments include antihistamines, phototherapy, steroids, topical treatments that contain capsaicin and topical anesthetics like Pramoxine, which has our heads like, woah, because how do you figure out what works?! We’re just glad Kim K’s figured out what works best for her, and that we’re getting an important lesson in minding our own ~business~ when it comes to our curiosity about celeb’s bodies. After all, they belong to them, not us, no matter how much skin they put out into the world.
