London: Britney Spears has sparked rumours that she may be suffering with psoriasis, after red patches were seen on her legs at the ‘X Factor’ premiere party in Los Angeles on September 11.

The 30-year-old popstar stepped out at the event in a form-fitting cobalt dress, with red patches on her left ankle and right heel clearly visible.

“Britney has had the skin condition for a long time, but it only flares up when she’s under extreme pressure,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling National Enquirer.

“Now she can’t seem to stop scratching and picking at the sores.
“She has a psoraisis skin cream, but she says it burns, so she stopped using it,” the source added.
