How to fix Keratosis Pilaris (AKA “Chicken Skin”)

Keratosis pilaris is a very common and completely harmless skin condition. Typified by clusters of small bumps in the skin, usually on the backs of the upper arms, thighs, or bottom, this is a condition that affects as many as 40 percent of adults. Keratosis pilaris is an inherited skin condition.

You can’t prevent keratosis pilaris, but you can keep your skin moist to lessen its effects.


Keratosis pilaris is a complex disease. It is divided into two types: non-itchy inflammation and itchy pruritic inflammation.

#first. Keratosis pilaris NOT itchy

This is the lightest follicle inflammation! Phenomenon is that there are nodules on the surface of the skin in common areas such as: [Arms-legs- Back- thigh] and some other areas!

With this follicular inflammation we can overcome by following the following skin care requirements:

+) Clean hygiene: take a shower twice a day, do not wear old clothes, and limit sweating.

+) Replace bath gel: This is optional. If changing shower gel caused inflammation of the hair follicle, then this time we should replace with Centaphil cleanser.


Exactly, that’s the cleanser! Centaphil Cleanser is a product that is used not only for the face but also for the whole body. In addition, according to the principle of cosmetic use, eye care products will be used for the face, and what is used for face will be used for the body!

+) The roof: Not only clothing but also underwear, choose the comfortable clothing to wear at home. And if you have to go out, tight fitting and bundle restrictions will make the follicles more serious.

+) Periodic exfoliation: Even without skin problems, we also have to exfoliate because this not only helps to prevent and treat hair follicles but also a good habit.

When you have pimples, use mechanical exfoliation, such as oatmeal or rice bran exfoliation. Specialty in the back or chest, we can treat by exfoliation with POWDER MEDICINE

Note: Do not abuse the exfoliation. We should only do once a week or once a fortnight

+) Moisturizing Control: The use of moisturizers is very good for the skin, but if you use moisturizing creams, it will clog pores and lead to hair folliculitis. For example, if you use a grapefruit scrub product, you should stop using a moisturizer for 1 to 2 days, and then use a regular moisturizer. Because grape oil is already a moisturizer.

+) Shaved & Wax Hair: A shave or wax coat should be taken after bathing!

For shaving, you should apply baby powder or a shaving cream to the skin before shaving. As for hairbrush, you need to apply a thin layer of olive oil to the waxing area before and after waxing! In addition, you can choose a permanent hair removal method to limit skin damage and hair follicle inflammation.

#2. Itchy pruritic inflammation.

This is a severe level of febrile and traumatic follicular disease, and we can not treat it ourselves at home because it requires both oral and topical medications.



– Do not scratch on the skin inflammation

– Keep the hygiene clean to avoid making the inflammation of the hair follicles more severe

– Go to the doctor as soon as possible

– Do not try to use folk remedies or buy some creams or medications on your face, as this can make the condition worse.

In short, inflammation of the pores should be treated for a long time. Be patient and follow the steps you have introduced to you and the doctor’s advice, you will succeed.
