Keratosis pilaris (ker-uh-toe-sis pih-LAIR-is) is a common skin condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps, usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks and buttocks. Keratosis pilaris (Kp) bumps are usually white, sometimes red, and generally do not hurt or itch. Kp can be frustrating because it is difficult to treat and causes many to be uncomfortable with the looks or feeling of this skin condition especially on the upper arms. However, it is not infectious, and can sometimes disappear as one gets older. In the meantime, if you desire to lessen and control this skin condition, this would be the treatment for you!
