KP?: The most common condition which sounds like what you are describing is keratosis pilaris, a dry skin condition.This is also common on the arms, thighs and trunk. Treatment consists of gentle clensing (cetaphil for face, dove for body) and moisturizers. It is hard to cure but can be improved. There are other conditions which can mimic this too. See a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis and treatmt.

Many possibilities: When you say "no" remedy, tha's hard to believe. You should consider many things that could cause this - topicals, foods, hormones, etc. So there are many options. Call your doctor so you can get back on track!
