Keratosis Pilaris

What is Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition that affects up to 1 in 4 adults and almost 80% of adolescents. It's characterized by rough bumps that are usually scattered along the legs, buttocks or upper arms, but other areas of the body may be involved too.

Treatments

There is no cure for keratosis pilaris. Moisture therapy, exfoliation, mild soap, and some doctors may prescribe a steroid based cream to help reduce inflammation. Topical retinoids are quite effective as well. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris, sometimes referred to as KP, is a skin condition that affects up to 1 in 4 adults and almost 80% of adolescents. It's characterized by rough bumps that are usually scattered along the legs, buttocks or upper arms, but other areas of the body may be involved too.

With KP, the skin usually feels bumpy with fine, flesh-colored bumps that are visible on the skin surface. In another type of keratosis pilaris, the bumps become red and inflamed and may resemble acne. The good news is this skin condition is harmless and is not a sign of underlying health problems. On the downside, it can be disfiguring, especially during bathing suit season when arms and legs are exposed for the world to see. That's why most people are motivated to find a solution for this frustrating skin problem.

What Causes It?

Keratosis pilaris is an inherited condition that's autosomal dominant in nature, meaning if a person has one parent with KP, he or she has a 50% chance of having it as well.
