Keratosis Pilaris

Clinical Overview

Keratosis pilaris is a genetic condition that results in the appearance of tiny hard bumps on the skin. The bumps appear because the body produces excess keratin, which surrounds hair follicles in the pore and forms hard plugs that often contain an ingrown hair. These bumps, which resemble goose bumps but are harder in texture and may appear red in color, usually appear on the upper arms, buttocks, and thighs.
