What Is Keratosis-Pilaris?

Keratosis-Pilaris, also known as Chicken skin is a condition that can cause dry, rough, and bumpy skin patches on the epidermis layer. Though this condition is harmless, experts say that it can never be cured completely. These bumpy pimples on the skin are dead skin cells. They can sometimes appear reddish in color as they come out tearing apart the hair follicles.

Some of the major areas that get affected by this skin disorder are – the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks.

Is it contagious? No. The condition is not contagious, and these skin bumps are not itchy or don’t cause irritation and discomfort. However, the symptoms worsen in the winter months as the skin tends to dry out during this season.

There is no cure for this skin condition, however, there are some lifestyle changes that one can adopt in order to keep the symptoms associated with it under control.

  1. Red-colored bumps on the skin
  2. Dry skin
  3. Itchy and irritable skin
  4. Patches on the skin

What are the risk factors or causes of this rare skin condition? According to the doctors, there are no obvious reasons behind the onset of this skin disease. However, conditions like atopic dermatitis and genetic diseases can majorly affect the person and make them prone to this skin condition. Home
