Improvement: This condition cannot be totally cured but can be attenuated. There is an excess of keratin in your hair follicles which accumulates for no known reason. Warm soaks can soften it and mild loofah type scrubs can minimize the appearance. But it does not respond to the usual topical medications and will recur so you have to keep at it over time.
