Taking Charge of Your Health

Keratosis pilaris is a very common skin problem
that causes hard, reddish or whitish bumps to appear on your skin. This problem normally doesn’t involve itchiness
or pain and it can appear on any part of the body, although it is more common on the arms,
thighs, face and buttocks. These little bumps are caused by a buildup
of keratin, and are frequently confused with acne. Furthermore, they can also cause your skin
to dry out, and make it look ashy or flaky. Keratosis pilaris normally disappears with
time, but you can treat it in several different ways: Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar works wonders on keratosis
pilaris. Its astringent properties help clear pores
and cleanses skin. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with one
part water and apply it directly onto the affected area. Let the mixture sit on your skin for a few
minutes before rinsing it off with cool water. Try this remedy on a small portion of skin
before applying it onto a larger area of your body, since some people can be very sensitive
to this remedy. Yogurt Yogurt is very good at treating dry skin and
improving your skin’s appearance. Put a little yogurt directly onto the affected
area 15 minutes before taking a shower. This will help reduce dryness and temporarily
get rid of the bumps. Rinse it off with cold or warm water. Milk Lactic acid found in milk can also be useful
to treat keratosis pilaris, by soothing and hydrating dry skin. Take a milk bath by adding 2 to 3 cups of
milk to your normal bathwater. Lay in the bath tub for at least 20 minutes. In order to treat the breakouts more effectively,
apply a small quantity of milk directly on to the bumps. Oats Oats are a great way to sooth dry skin. They can also be used as a gentle exfoliant
to help remove impurities and dead skin cells. Make a paste by mixing a little water with
some oats. Put the paste on your face like a mask and
let it sit for 15 minutes. Remove the mask carefully with a warm washrag
and see the immediate results. Sour Cream Like the yogurt, sour cream also contains
lactic acid. An exfoliant made out of sour cream and sugar
can help remove dry skin without worsening your condition. Coconut Oil Coconut oil is an excellent natural moisturizer. It cleanses dry skin safely, and helps improve
skin problems. Apply coconut oil directly onto your skin
after bathing. You can repeat the application several times
a day, as needed.

  1. During my pregnancy I developed kp on my right upper arm. I wanted to share how I got rid of it. I took half himalayan salt, half organic sugar and mixed it with a little coconut oil to a paste for an exfoliant. Took a bath and rubbed it on the kp. Then when I got out I took coconut oil with 2-3 drops of organic tea tree essential oil (I used plant therapy brand) rubbed it on the kp and left it on. I did this daily. It was gone in a week and a half. You can cut down on the amount you exfoliate if your skin is too sensitive the key is the tea tree oil/coconut oil anyway.

  2. Don’t use dairy to treat this. If anything remove dairy from your diet. And coconut oil can clog your pores, try Jojoba Oil.

  3. My arms, legs and back are filled with these granite bumps. But in my teenage life I had never suffered something like this.😞😞

  4. I have this on both of my arms. I hate it. I feel really insecure whenever wear short sleeve shirts.

  5. I have it on my upper arms and lower legs some people think i have goosebumps, acne, pimples and im in track and field so IT MAKES IT EVEN WORSE

  6. I wish that there was no such as pimples,acne etc that is so annoying……. And also I also hate it when people ask what happened with a disgusting way (Some people)

  7. Lol I have bed bug bites and I'm putting this sort of medicine and it's starting to fade away but there is like tiny bumbs and idk what it is :/

  8. I’m 12 and I had it since I was little and hated myself because I would look at other girls and see how their skin was perfect

  9. I had them on my arms and back, I tried everything from home remedies to dermatologists. Finally after more than 5 years I managed to get rid of them.

    My marks were very dark and had made my skin dark and dull, I had literally given up and I thought I had to live with them for the rest of my life. Finally I found a doctor who asked me to mix 15ml of thuja with 50ml of lacto calamine lotion, apply it on the affected areas at night. And wash it while bathing the next morning. It has been 20 days and marks have reduced by 80% I can finally wear sleeveless tops and backless dresses.

  10. If any part of my arms or legs are visible at school people are like GIRL how are you cold?! And I’m just like “ It’s permanent”

  11. I always have this on my arms every summer because of sweating.. Cetaphil soap and lotion really helps me😍

  12. i woke up the day before yesterday with a rash on my neck, i left it thinking it would go away, i woke up the next day and it spread to my chin, later that day i realised it also showed up on my arms. im scared

  13. Who else hates when people are freaked out to hug you or something because they think it’s contagious and gross. Then they end up asking if it’s contagious and stare at it, disgusted.

  14. I’ve had it for 8 years and believe me it doesn’t go away 👎🏻 I have tried everything the doctor said🤯

  15. I have a lot in my arms ,so ugly

  16. Just figured out this was a thing. Looked up chicken skin (from shaving) remedies. And I do have this on my legs and arms moderately. Thanks internet!

  17. I only get this when I do t put lotion on. For some reason most white people think putting on lotion after a bath or shower every day is a cultural thing but it’s not there is a reason we do this that’s why most black people who don’t do drugs she really well. Try it it really soothes you too especially if you put on lotion before bed after a shower or bath.

  21. I have a lot on my arms and only a few on my face, how long does it take to increase on my face?

  22. I’ve had this my whole life. When I was in elementary school kids and teachers would ask if it was contagious. I got insecure about it and would wear long sleeves and covered up my face w my hair. And now I’m just like fuck off idc anymore and I wear short sleeves and finally cut my hair lol. It’s been spreading down to my hands and from my thighs to my knees so I just say fuck it I guess this is apart of me now and move on. Lol

    I have tried most of these and they do work well but not for long..but the apple cider vinegar works best

  23. I have this and I'm 12 years old, I'm trying to get rid of it.Hopefully it works if it does I'm so thank full. I've been trying to get rid of it for years know. I didn't know what it was I just thought it was normal, but I'm going to try it out.

  24. It was on my arms and that was fine then it went to my cheeks but I have freckles so I didn’t see it but noe I am gonna get rid of them

  25. I have bumps on my skin and I’m trying to figure out what it is😫 it’s only on my hands, arms and 3 on my face. It’s not very noticeable, but it’s making me insecure😔 more and more keep on popping up. I thought it was malia, but I heard it’s only on the face, so I think it’s this

  26. Stop consuming red meat and it will go away. Everytime that happens to me I do blood test showing high cholesterol levels. It goes away when I switch to less fatty no meat diet.
