What is Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a common, chronic skin condition characterized by small, rough and dry bumps on the skin surface.

The bumps can range in color from white to red, and may resemble goosebumps with the texture of sandpaper.

How does KP occur?

KP occurs because of a keratin accumulation within the hair follicles. This buildup leads to the formation of “plugs”, which result in the characteristic bumps.

The exact cause of KP is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic factors, abnormal keratin production, and dry skin.

Where in the body does KP commonly occur?

It typically appears on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and occasionally on the face.

While there is no cure for KP, various treatment options can help improve and maintain skin appearance by reducing the bumps and roughness.

Although Keratosis Pilaris is a harmless condition, it can be a source of self-consciousness and cosmetic concern for some individuals.
