Leann Rimes is opening up about her longrunning chronic skin disease - and is urging other sufferers of psoriasis to "stop hiding" the condition.
The Blue singer was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder at the age of two and she's long battled the problem, which commonly causes recurring red, scaly patches to appear on the skin.
Now Rimes has teamed up with the American Academy of Dermatology and the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) to back their Make A Change Pledge, which aims to de-stigmatise the disease.
She says, "The purpose of the Make a Change Pledge is to empower people living with psoriasis to make changes that can help them increase their understanding of the disease and its impact on their everyday lives, as well as encourage them to work with a dermatologist to optimally manage their disease.
"As a performer in the public spotlight, coping with my psoriasis was scary and frustrating at times. I had to recognise how psoriasis was affecting many aspects of my life and commit to managing it. Personally, I learned to control my disease by working with a dermatologist to develop a treatment plan that is best for me."
