Has anyone cured there Keratosis Pilaris out there?
I want to know if anyone has actually got rid of it through home remedy, prescription, diet, or actions, and not by age, not by growing out of it. I'm actively trying to cure myself.

Treatment To treat keratosis pilaris patients can try several strategies to lessen the bumps. First, the patient can supplement the natural removal of dry skin and papules by using a loofah or another type of scrub showering or bathing. A variety of different over-the-counter (OTC) lotions, ointments, and creams can also be applied after showering while the skin is still moist and then several times a day to keep the area moist. Medicated lotions with urea, 15% alphahydroxy acids, or Retin A can also be prescribed by the dermatologist and applied one to two times daily. Systemic (oral) medications are not prescribed for keratosis pilaris. However if papules are opened and become infected, antibiotics may be necessary to treat the infection. Q:Are there any effective treatments for keratosis pilaris? A: Keratosis pilaris is a common skin disorder. Although it isn't serious, it can be frustrating because it's difficult to treat. Keratosis pilaris occurs most often in children. It results from the buildup of a protein called keratin in the openings of hair follicles in the skin. This produces small, rough patches — usually on the arms, thighs and face. The exact cause isn't known, but it may be associated with eczema. Keratosis pilaris typically causes no pain or itching. Treatment is directed at softening the keratin deposits in the skin and may include medicated creams containing urea or lactic acid. Even with treatment, this condition tends to remain for years. If associated with eczema, keratosis pilaris may improve with treatment of the underlying eczema. betamethasone dipropionate, Diprosone, Diprolene chloroxine-shampoo, Capitrol corticosteroids-topical desoximetasone-topical, Topicort, Topicort LP fluocinolone-topical oil, Derma-Smoothe/FS fusidic acid/hydrocortisone-topical halobetasol-topical, Ultravate hydrocortisone valerate, Westcort omega-3 fatty acids-oral, Coromega, Longs Fish Oil, Max Epa, Omega-3, Salmon Oil, Superepa pimecrolimus, Elidel pramoxine-hydrocortisone-cream, ointment, Enzone, Pramosone pramoxine-hydrocortisone-lotion, Pramosone, Zone-A tacrolimus ointment, Protopic tea tree oil-topical Answered by Carlie Capizzi 2 years ago.
Usually women are the ones embarrassed by a skin condition but guys get self-conscious too. My keratosis pilaris really got to me in my late teens. I got made fun of by my so-called friends and became dptressed and withdrawn. Comments like, what's that leprosy stuff on your arms? I can't tell you how many dates and social outings I've missed because of keratosis pilaris. I always thought just what if I didn't have this. But thanks to this program I'm almost totally clear. I'm dating now. I'm actually asking my friends to go to the beach. I'm more outgoing. Life is good. Natural Keratosis Pilaris Cure? Answered by Guy Gruenhagen 2 years ago.
