Cosmetic issue: Treatment is difficult. A number of lotions and creams (keratolytic agents) are available. Gentle exfoliation by a pumice stone, wash cloth, or loofah sponge can also be helpful.

Moisturizing: Coconut oil is moisturizing, which may help diminish roughness and improve appearance of hyperkeratosis pilaris, but definitive treatment involves alpha hydroxy acids and/or topical steroids.
