Keratosis Pilaris Treatment

Can Keratosis Pilaris be completely cured?

Can Keratosis Pilaris be completely cured?

As anyone with Keratosis Pilaris knows, the search for a treatment and cure can be exhausting. But what many don’t understand is that Keratosis Pilaris is an inherited skin condition.

The recommended treatments for KP are only for the *temporary* relief of symptoms and must be used continuously to see improvement.

The treatment plan recommended by your child’s doctor or dermatologist should be maintained on a regular basis to ensure the best results in lessening the visibility and texture of the bumps on their face, arms and legs.

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Keratosis Pilaris.

Although the condition may remain for years, symptoms usually lessen by age 30. Keratosis pilaris symptoms may go away with age, but there is currently no cure.

Results will vary from case to case.  This simply means that what may work for one child, may not work for another.

Each child’s skin, diet and sun exposure is different. So keep trying different remedies until you find the best product with the best results for your child.

Recommended Products for Toddlers with KP:  2 – 4 years

Recommended Products for Toddlers with KP: 2 – 4 years

Our toddlers become more mobile and independent every year, and managing the health of their skin becomes very important during these busy years.

But how do you care for their still tender skin at this age?

Recommended Products for Toddlers with Keratosis Pilaris - Age 2-4 Years | KPKids.net

Toddlers with Keratosis Pilaris | www.kpkids.netStart a daily routine.

The better they know what to expect in bathing and moisturizing their skin, the more independent (and less bothered!) they feel about your frequent attention to their skin. Establishing a consistent routine will help your child know what to expect and will help you remember to apply moisturizers or limit bath time.

Simple things like daily routine boards and reward charts are a great way of encouraging your child to establish good habits.

The more consistent you can be with your skin care and bathing routine, the more relaxed your toddler will be with your continued attention to their skin.

 

Keep their skin moisturized.

Apply a moisturizing lotion or cream often during the day. Keep your favorite lotion or cream near your diaper-changing area to remind you to reapply a light layer of lotion after each diaper change.

I always loved having a diaper caddy (or diaper-changing basket) nearby stocked with all the diapers, lotions or creams I would need. It was easy to move from room to room, and held enough supplies to last about a week. As your toddler transitions into potty-training, these baskets/caddies are great for holding extra flushable wipes and extra pairs of toddler underwear.

Keep trying until you find something that works.

We’ve tested many products in our home through the years, and have come across our favorites through trial and error.  These are some of our top mom-tested products (and brands) for treating keratosis pilaris, eczema and sensitive dry skin in children…
