The Mystery of Keratosis Pilaris
Whether mild or severe, Keratosis Pilaris is not a pleasant thing to deal with. Maybe you didn’t even realize you had an actual “skin condition” and just thought it was dry skin or ingrown hairs. The fact is, Keratosis Pilaris is somewhat of a mystery to many people who have it. It’s not a serious medical condition, and for most people, Keratosis Pilaris often resolves itself eventually. While you have it though, it can make you feel self-conscience about the appearance and texture of your skin. What is Keratosis Pilaris? According to The Mayo Clinic, Keratosis Pilaris is “a common skin condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps, usually on the arms and thighs.” The condition is often difficult to treat and is caused by the build-up of keratin which blocks hair follicles. Dry skin can exacerbate the problem. People with Keratosis Pilaris will notice small bumps that may appear like acne, rough patches, and skin-colored bumps which are generally painless.
