Keratosis pilaris (KP) represents those tiny scaly bumps on the back of the arms and on the legs. They resemble “goose bumps” or “chicken skin.” KP is the retention of keratin within hair follicles and therefore feels rough and scaly. Though a very common condition, it is difficult to treat. Multiple creams and chemical peels can be used to exfoliate and dissolve away the retained keratin.
