How do I treat chicken bumps?

Asked by Sana 3 Rep.

Hello! Sir, I have small bumps on my skin, but not just on arms or thighs like chicken bumps but on forearms legs as well as nether regions.

    Hi there, thanks for your question. Chicken bumps, otherwise known as Keratosis Pilaris is a common issue that many of us experience. The good news is it’s not dangerous, but still an annoying skin care issue. While there’s no permanent solution, this is another situation where exfoliants can help, because these hard little bumps represent overgrowths of dead cells on the top of the hair follicle. I tell my patients to dissolve them away with a chemical exfoliant, like BeautyRx’s Daily Exfoliating Body Lotion. With continued use, the lotion will reduce the appearance of your chicken skin.
