What Is This Bumpy Skin On My Arms And Thighs?

 

Keratosis Pilaris, also known as chicken skin bumps, is a common condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms hard plugs within hair follicles.

 

Symptoms include :

  • small white or red bumps typically on the upper arms or thighs
  • dry, rough  and sometimes itchy skin in the areas with bumps
  • worsening in the winter when humidity is low and skin tends to be drier

Best Treatments Include:

Cleanse – use a mild cleansing lotion to provide moisture and prevent dry, red irritations

Exfoliate – professional micro exfoliation treatments gently removes the outer layer of dead skin cells leaving a smoother texture

Moisturize – use moisturizer frequently and avoid any products that might dry the skin.
