Here are a few tips to help you find what you are looking for:
Is the skin on your arms and thighs covered in small, red, itchy bumps? If so, it’s probably keratosis pilaris—a non-threatening condition that affects about 40% of the population.
Keratosis pilaris is most commonly due to genetic factors and is more prevalent among women than men. It usually starts in adolescence or early adulthood and mostly affects those with sensitive skin. It’s also more common in the winter when humidity levels are low.
You can recognize it by the rough, almost scaly, texture it gives to the back of your arms and thighs. The small pimples are mostly dry but can sometimes contain a little pus (sounds lovely, doesn’t it?). They’re caused by an excessive accumulation of keratin (the ‘base material’ of hair) or dead skin cells in the hair follicles, which cause inflammation, hence the redness.
While often painless, keratosis pilaris can cause discomfort. Since the skin is drier, it may become tight. Some people may also be somewhat embarrassed by how it looks.
To eliminate the unpleasantness associated with keratosis pilaris, just make a few adjustments to your beauty routine. Moisturizing and exfoliating are key.
