Treatment for keratosis pilaris

Ingrowing hairs or keratosis pilaris is one of the most common skin problems, affecting about 40% of the population. It is due to overproduction of keratin in the hair follicles.

It generally occurs during the first decade of life, peaking during adolescence and early adulthood. It generally lessens and disappears after the age of 30, but it can reappear, or persist after 30.

This problem is completely benign and the origin of most cases is genetic, but sometimes other secondary factors such as psoriasis and abnormal follicles play a part.

Clinically, one observes dry skin with a granular appearance similar to goose bumps, and sometimes redness (inflamed ingrowing hair), which is rugged to the touch.  Apart from being a beauty issue, there are no other symptoms.

Ingrowing hairs are found on the bottom, arms, and lower limbs, but rarely on the face.
