Keratosis pilaris is characterized by dry, rough patches and small bumps on the back, arms, thighs and other areas of the body. These small bumps form when obstructed hair growth patterns cause the skin to become congested. Keratosis pilaris is generally worse during the winter, but luckily, there are several products available to treat this common skin concern.

Joel Schlessinger MD’s recent presentation on frequently asked questions about keratosis pilaris highlights several recommendations for exfoliating products proven to help minimize these dry, rough patches of skin. For personalized treatment options, you should make an appointment to see your local dermatologist.
