Question visible pores on my legs

Please help, I have for the past 7 years an embarrasing problem. My legs looks like I have a thousand pores, my pores look red and I sometimes pop them and it is like I have a lot of blackheads on my legs and back of arms.


Please respond asap!!!!

Hi

It sounds like you might have the same problem that I have. I have those small bumps mostly on the back of my legs and arms. I don't even wear shorts because of it in the summer. I recently decided to see what was going on. My dermatologist told me that I have karatosis pilaris. He gave me a special lotion to put on. I also read that this condition may be caused by a vitamin A deficiency.
