You need a good MD: for good history and physical examination, and sorting out what would be the cause(s) for your symptoms. I am not aware of latent jaundice, and whether it would lead to keratosis pilaris, a skin condition unrelated to the liver. The herbal medicine that you take is just a placebo, your liver and your whole body is designed to take care of toxins. See a good internist, good luck

No: Keratosis pilaris is mostly from dry skin and often can be alleviated by regular usage of skin moisturizer applied within 3 mins after bathing. Need to see doc about tiredness and skin rash.
