What is keratosis pilaris?
Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition, which appears as tiny bumps on the skin. Some people say these bumps make their skin look like plucked chicken skin. Others mistake the bumps for small pimples.
These rough-feeling bumps are actually plugs of dead skin cells. The plugs appear most often on the upper arms and thighs (front), and back. However, the symptom can actually appears every where. Children may have these bumps on their cheeks.
If the itch, dryness, or the appearance of keratosis pilaris bothers you, treatment can help. Dry skin can make these bumps more noticeable. In fact, many people say the bumps clear during the summer only to return in the winter. If you live in a dry climate or frequently swim in a pool, you may see these bumps year round.
