Britney Spears may be having a career resurgence now that she’s a judge on The X Factor, but the increased workload could be wreaking havoc on her skin.

The 30-year-old appeared at the X Factor premiere with what look like sores on her feet; and The National Enquirer claims the singer suffers from psoriasis.

“Britney has had the skin condition for a long time,” a source says, “but it only flares up when she’s under extreme pressure.”

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when one’s skin cells grow too rapidly, resulting in a buildup of dead cells on the skin’s surface, causing red and white patches to appear.

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