Keratosis Pilaris is a common skin condition diagnosed in approximately 40% of the population.
It is characterized by tiny bumps on the skin, usually found on the outer areas of the upper arms, thighs, cheeks and sometimes the face (often referred to as “chicken skin”).
The bumps give a sandpaper-like texture to the skin in these areas. It commonly presents itself as flesh-colored to slightly red, rough little bumps.
If you believe that you or your child may have the skin condition Keratosis Pilaris, be sure to visit your child’s physician or dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis. In most cases, your child’s doctor can diagnose Keratosis Pilaris, also known as KP, simply by examining and touching the skin.
