Re: Red bumpy skin..help

This is called keratosis pilaris and unfortunately cannot be cured. Your derm can prescribe you lotions to alleviate some of the symptoms, but it's unlikely to be completely eliminated through treatment. For some people it gets better with age; for others, not. It gets worse in cold, dry environments.

Re: Red bumpy skin..help

I have had this same conditions for years on the back of my arms, but never did anything about it. When my little girl got it I asked her dr. and she suggeted putting Kerasal ointment on it twice a say. You can get it at WalMart on the foot isle. I have used it on my arms and I am having no problems what so ever. I have noticed once you stop using it the bumps come back because like the person replied before me there is no cure. I hope this helps, and I promise this stuff really works. Take Care,
Missy
