Keratosis pilaris affects over fifty percent of the adolescents all over the world.

Yet no definitive cure has enlightened the world.

It happens because your body starts to produce an excess of the protein called keratin. It is a creamy, white substance found in the tough, outer layer of your skin.


This accumulates in the hair follicles to form a little plug, which blocks the point of growth of hairs in the follicle.

These little plugs create heaved, uneven bumps, and disturbs the growth of hair normally.


The hair tends to grow in a curled shape inside the follicle itself. It becomes inflamed and causes the skin around it to become red, itchy.


Fortunately there are several things you can do to lessen the facade of the spots and make the appearance of the skin better.


You should use non-soap based cleansers on your skin rather than soap. Soap makes the skin dry. The dryness make the bumps more prominent.


Secondly moisturise the bumpy areas on a regular basis to keep the skin soft and supple.


Creams containing ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid or urea are mostly suggested.

These ingredients not only moisturise the skin, but act as natural exfoliating agents which removes the top layers of the skin, and loosen the keratin plugs.


If you feel that topical creams are not enough then use a rough wash cloth or pumice stone on the areas.


Be very careful not to scrub too vigorously or hard, especially when using a pumice stone, as this can peel too much skin, and make the area very sensitive, exposed and sore.


If your keratosis pilaris is causing lot of uneasiness, visit your physician or a dermatologist.


They have expertise to prescribe other treatments, like chemical peels, retinol creams, and dermabrasion. These may not cure this condition, but they can certainly improve it significantly.


The uneven, heaved red skin condition alleviates. The skin feels smoother. This is the only way to get rid of keratosis pilaris.
