London: Singer Liam Gallagher suffers from skin disease psoriasis and the condition is so bad, a fan once mistook flakes of skin on the rocker`s scalp for cocaine.

The former Oasis star has opened up about the disorder, revealing his entire body is covered in sensitive red patches and Gallagher credits the problem with causing one of his most bizarre fan incidents after a devotee saw white flakes of skin shedding from his scalp and snorted his hair thinking it was cocaine, reports contactmusic.com.

"I`ve got bad skin. I`ve got psoriasis all over my body. Everywhere except my face. And every now and again on me head. Everyone`s backstage and this geezer (man) comes up to me (intoxicated), going, `I ain`t seen Oasis for years, great.` And I`m going, `Yeah, alright`," said the singer.

"And he goes to his mate: `Look Steve, he`s even got cocaine in his hair`. And he pulls a bit out of my hair and snorts it up both nostrils. On my life, it`s true," he added.
