LITTLE RED BUMPS?
By Medical News Today
What are those little red bumps? They may be Keratosis Pilaris (KP), a genetic skin condition resulting from a build up of dead skin cells in hair follicles, causing patches of little red bumps that nag 40 percent of the world's population.
There is no cure for Keratosis Pilaris, but leading dermatologists, like Dr. Alan Fleischer, professor and chair of the department of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, recommends keeping skin moisturized with a moisturizer containing lactic acid, which may help minimize the dry skin associated with KP. Be sure to see a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis since other medical conditions can mimic KP.
