Keratosis Pilares (kp)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

As if having localized linear morphea wasn't enough for a 6 year old to endure, my daughter recently developed a whole bunch of little tiny "goosebump" like spots scattered over her body. At first I thought it was a viral reaction or allergic reaction to an unknown source, but her pediatrician informed me that it was KP, (generally caused by dry skin and clogged hair folicles), and it is extremely common. It is also sometimes known as chicken skin. I know that there are websites dedicated to KP, but I was wondering if anyone here has found a successful way to get rid of it or reduce its appearance. It is difficult for others to see, but I pour over my daughter's body frequently checking for new lesions. Thanks!

 

Jennifer
