KHLOE Kardashian has hit back at haters who mocked her face bandaid in a throwback gym snap.
The star previously faced criticism from fans for looking alarmingly thin in the very same photo, which she originally shared back in December 2022.

On Sunday, the Good American mogul took to Instagram to share what appeared to be an old photo.
The pic showed her making a kissy face at the camera while seemingly sitting on the floor in her home gym.
She captioned the post: “Happy Sunday,” with a white heart emoji.
A bandage was barely visible beneath the light makeup she appeared to have on but could be seen on her right cheek upon closer inspection.
One fan took to the comments of the post to inquire about the bandage, but it seems Khloe didn’t appreciate their tone.
The commenter wrote: “And what the heck is on your cheek?”
The Hulu star replied: “A bandage. I had a tumor removed from my face but I’m totally ok. Thank you for asking.”
Someone else asked: “Is that a band aid on your jaw line @khloekardashian or makeup?”
She responded: “It’s a scar strip. I had a tumor removed from my face a few moments ago so I wear this for healing and the prevention of my scar getting worse. All is great and healing wonderfully.”
Khloe has been open with fans about her healing journey in the wake of her skin cancer scare.
In October 2022, she revealed to fans the reason she had been seen out on several occasions with a bandaid on her face.
She shared a series of snaps on her Instagram Stories explaining the situation.
In one post, she put together a collage of photos of herself rocking the skin-colored bandage on her cheek.
She wrote: “I’ve seen numerous stories about the ever-evolving bandage on my face, with some of you wondering why I’ve been wearing one for the past few weeks.”
The Kardashians star revealed that she noticed a “small bump on her face and assumed it was a zit” but it persisted for seven months.
A photo in the bunch showed a closeup of the bump, which Khloe circled and pointed an arrow to.
After two biopsies on the bump, Khloe shared that her doctors said the findings required immediate surgery and removal.
The reality star explained that her margins from the surgery appear clear and that she is now in the process of “healing.”
She reminded her followers in another post to be vigilant about checking their skin and wearing sunscreen.
She wrote: “At 19, I had melanoma on my back, and I had surgery to remove that as well, so I’m pre-composed to melanomas.”
Khloe went on to thank her doctors, adding: “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Try not to judge and be kind for you have no idea what they are going through.”
Khloe also posted a video montage of herself walking in slow motion while abroad in France for Paris Fashion Week.
The popular 90’s song “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred plays, as the camera zoomed in on her bandage.
She captioned the clip: “I hope you enjoy how fabulous I’m making these face bandages look.”
After Khloe shared her diagnosis with fans, it came to light that Hollywood Medium star Tyler Henry had previously predicted that she would have such a scare.
“This just came through really strongly. Skin,” he said during a 2017 episode of the show.
“I’m referencing to what looks like melanoma. I’m getting a reference to three separate situations that I view as being problem areas.
“You have a susceptibility on your back. And there’s a susceptibility on your leg. And I need you to keep both in mind. This is huge.“
Khloe seemed caught off guard as she asked: “I’ve had melanoma on my back, but never on my leg, so where else?”
Tyler looked embarrassed as he tried to explain that he was referring to a “private area”, which Khloe took to mean her breasts.
In a confessional, she revealed: “I am susceptible to skin cancer. I’ve had it twice before and I get checked every three months.
“I thrive off information so I can do something about it.”
