What is Keratosis Pilaris (KP)?
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — September 8, 2009 — KP is a genetic skin condition that affects 40 percent of the world’s population, often resulting in patches of dry skin, and little red bumps, on the arms and legs. KP is most prevalent in the teenage years but may continue throughout adulthood. There is no cure for Keratosis Pilaris.
Dr. Alan B. Fleischer, professor and chair of the department of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, recommends keeping skin moisturized to help manage the dry skin associated with KP by using products containing lactic acid, such as AmLactin® or AmLactin XL®.

People with KP may experience flesh-colored or red bumps around hair follicles on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and cheeks, extremely dry skin and, in some cases, itching. It is important to be aware that other medical conditions can mimic KP, so people with these symptoms should visit a doctor to confirm a diagnosis.
