In brief: Seems familial

Treatment may include: moisturizing lotions to soothe the skin and help it look better skin creams that contain urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, tretinoin, or vitamin d, or steroid creams to reduce redness improvement often takes months and the bumps are likely to come back.
Don't put anything on her skin without speaking to her doctor.
