Yes, sometimes: Keratosis pilaris is the accentuated hair follicles and are small raised and frequently red. Sometimes they itch, but many times there is no itching. Treatment really depends on the itching. The usual locations is on the upper outer arms and thighs.

Usually only on arms: Keratosis pilaris usually occurs only on the triceps (the back of your upper arms). They look like small red bumps and may be itchy. The treatment is usually to use an acid moisturizer like lachydran 12% cream twice daily.
