@.twist.:  KP is better than melanoma. I’d skip the tanning bed & try one of the lotions or diet.

I have keratosis pilaris and I use Urea cream.  I got it at walgreens.  It definitely helps the problem I’ve have my entire life!  It doesnt totally get rid of it, but it has reduced it enough where I can feel comfortable going strapless at my wedding

@HeLovesMexo:  I just get AmLactin over the counter at any pharmacy.  I do notice its better during the summer because I’m in the sun for work a lot. 

I think the diet thing may help too.  There isn’t a whole lot you can do about it from what I understand besides try to minimize the redness.

I have this too.  I’ve tried Amlactin in the past, but I never noticed a difference.  You know what does help me?  Exfoltiating – with anything.  It doesn’t have to be a super expensive alpha hydroxy, not that there is anything wrong with that.  I use an inexpensive sugar scrub or almond scrub every 2 days or so, it has drastically reduced the kp bumps.  Good luck!

Sounds like KP! I’ve tried everything and more, and nothing has worked to totally get rid of it. Learn to love it!

I do feel that lots of moisturizer (natural and unscented), exfoliating in the shower and NOT PICKING help a lot… but I always am too lazy to keep it up.

My dermatologist mentioned that tanning might help because of something to do with skin cells. I have only ever tanned for my wedding (horrible farmers tan and strapless dress). I did notice a change, but I don’t know if I would trade bumps for cancer and leathery skin later down the road.
