KERATOSIS PILARIS: BRIEF OVERVIEW

Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition that is very common and harmless, which causes small and hard bumps to appear on the skin — it makes the skin feel like rough sandpaper. These bumps are usually light-skinned and some people usually refer to it as goosebumps or plucked chicken skin.

The causes of the bumps are mostly as a result of dead skin cells plugs. These plugs can be seen around the upper arms and the thighs. These bumps can also be found on the cheeks of children.

Keratosis pilaris is harmless; however, if the itching, dryness or their appearances on the skin make you feel uncomfortable; some treatments can help to reduce the symptoms and also help you get clearer skin. Treating dry skin can help to reduce the symptoms of keratosis pilaris because these bumps are more noticeable when the skin is very dry. Treatment can be done using moisturisers or prescription cream to help the appearance of the skin.

Clearskin London is always available to help you cater for all your dermatology needs be it Keratosis Pilaris or any other skin condition. You can schedule an appointment with our dermatologist London to get a treatment plan started.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
