Do I have KP?
While your doctor or dermatologist is the best person to give you a definitive Keratosis Pilaris diagnosis, there are some common symptoms that may suggest you are part of the 50% of adults or 80% of adolescents impacted by KP.
- Painless tiny bumps, most commonly on upper arms and thighs
- Sandpaper-like texture and appearance on skin
- White or red bumps can occasionally be itchy
- Resembles irritated goose bumps or dry pimples
- Seems like dozens of ingrown hairs on arms, legs, buttocks, or cheeks
- Bumps can be more pronounced in colder months
While it is important to know the common signs of KP, it is just as important to be knowledgeable as to what Keratosis Pilaris is not.
These skin conditions, while similar in appearance, are unrelated to Keratosis Pilaris:
- Goose bumps
- Painful rash
If you believe you may have Keratosis Pilaris, consult a doctor or dermatologist for confirmation. With proper application of KP Elements Exfoliating Skin Cream, you may be able to reduce the appearance of raised, red bumps in as little as 30 days.
