Keratosis pylaris: Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a disorder of build up of keratin within the hair follicles of the skin. The condition can be remedied with a good exfoliating scrub and also by improving the consistency and fluidity of the skin membrane from the inside. This can be done with a good fish oil supplement as well as eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants. Vitamin A is also recommended.

Eval: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.
