Little Bumps All Over Back
My 25 month old has little bumps all over the back of her arms and thighs. How can I treat this at home, or to at least make it smoother?
Moisturize/Exfoliate: Dry bumps on the thighs or backs of the arms are often keratosis pilaris (plugged follicles). Try brief baths followed by moisturizer.
