Keratosis Pilaris

 

A common skin condition in which hard plugs are formed within the hair follicles by a skin protein called keratin. It is an autosomal dominant and genetic follicular condition. Major place/parts of appearance are back side of upper arms, thighs, hands, chest, buttocks, top of legs or any body part except glabrous skin. The condition is completely harmless. Along with the cosmetic consequences, the condition most often appears as a proliferation of tiny hard bumps that rae seldom sore. Lower moisture level in the air favors this type of condition. There is no complete cure to this condition, although one may use creams containing acid forms of vitamin ‘A’.
