sorry let me explain..Keratosis pilaris is completely harmless. It is usually worse during the winter months or other times of low humidity when skin dries out. THis happens when the dead skin that usually flakes off does not do so.

It looks like the same thing that my 16 yr. old son has.

He has it from suffering from acne most of his teenage life.

I just have him use an exfoliating cloth that I buy at The Body Shop.

Although, it didn't completely get rid of it-it helped the look of it.

You may want to visit a dermatologist to get some additional tips and maybe a prescription.

Good Luck!

it is inherited and improves with age. Using mild soaps, without detergents in them may help. There are also many tips to improve this condition on emedicine.com. Also there are a couple of medicated creams to help. Check it out.! My husband has the same condition, but has dramatically improved since switching to organic products and glycerin soap. Hope it helps!
