“I have psoriasis,” the TV host wrote in a touching Facebook post on Wednesday. “Don’t worry, it’s a noncommunicable skin disorder. It is not contagious. It’s a painful, chronic disease characterized by incessant itching and scratching. Occasional bleeding and scabbing. Reddening of the skin and flaking. It’s not pretty for sure, but I have been hiding it well.”

Bediones later called on his fellow Filipinos who are also suffering from psoriasis to seek immediate treatment. He said, “More than two million of my kabalat (fellow people with the same skin) in the country suffer the daily plight of flare ups that are mild to severe, that happen during bouts of stress and heat, and sometimes it’s caused by the food we eat. Some have even perished from the ordeal.”

“If you know anyone with psoriasis, hug them. If you see me on the street, hug me,” he encouraged.

This was the second time Bediones opened up about his plight. Back in 2014, he served as a spokesperson and ambassador ng Psoriasis Philippines.  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
