The Facts About Keratosis Pilaris
Also known as follicular keratosis, keratosis pilaris causes goosebump-like lesions on the back of the arms, buttocks, and/or thighs. The patches are usually dry and itchy, mostly during winter months when there is less moisture in the air. Keratosis pilaris can occur at any age and is hereditary. The skin condition may go away on its own but can be a chronic condition for some patients.
