Keratosis Pilaris occurs when there is excess keratin protein in the skin that plugs hair follicles, causing bumps to form that make your skin feel like sandpaper and appear like goose flesh. The reason for the buildup of keratin is not known.
The symptoms of keratosis pilaris include rough, dry and sometimes itchy skin; small white or red bumps usually on the legs, upper arms, buttocks or cheeks. It generally worsens in winter when the humidity levels are low and the skin is drier.
If you have dry skin, you’re more likely to have keratosis pilaris. It’s usually worse in the winter months, when there’s less moisture in the air, and then may clear up in the summer. It often affects people with certain skin conditions, including eczema (also called atopic dermatitis).
Here are some remedies to cure keratosis pilaris.
