Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris is a form of keratosis that is not pre-cancerous. This keratosis tends to form on babies and most commonly on teens. It is caused by dry skin flaking and clogging hair follicles on the arms, buttocks, and thighs. These bumps are not itchy or painful and can be treated with a tropical cream. The tropical cream can be prescribed by your physician and will remove any unsightly bumps. A moisturising cream containing glycolic acid will help to relieve the condition by gently exfoliating the skin without harsh scrubbing.
