About Keratosis Pilaris and www.littleredbumps.com
KP results from keratin, a hard protein that protects the skin from harmful substances and infection. This build-up of keratin forms a scaly plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle. When many plugs form, the result can be patches of rough, bumpy skin. KP is commonly referred to as “chicken skin.”
The website www.littleredbumps.com offers visitors valuable coupons for AmLactin® and is designed to entertain visitors while providing them with information about KP. As the virtual host, Laurie Rose aka Miss Little Red Bumps regales visitors with toe-tapping, original songs and educates people about KP and dry skin through entertaining yet informative videos. Both the videos and songs can be downloaded for free.
There is no cure for Keratosis Pilaris (KP) and the cause remains unknown, however it tends to run in families.2 People with KP may experience flesh-colored or red bumps around hair follicles on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and cheeks or extremely dry, itchy skin.1,3 It is important to be aware that other medical conditions can mimic KP, so people with these symptoms should visit a doctor or dermatologist to confirm a diagnosis.
