Project 365 – Day 118

KP – does anyone else have an issue with this? It’s called Keratosis Pilaris (KP) or so fondly referred to as “chicken skin”. It started appearing on my arms when I began taking prenatal vitamins (oh so many years ago) and hasn’t gone away since. It does look better because I have started to exfoliate more and trying to open up the follicles. My right arm is worse than my left one. Apparently 40-50% of women have this – hooray for KP….

  1. Interesting…. in HS I had rough white patches all over my upper arms. I can't remember what it was called. I still get it but it's nowhere near as bad as it once was.

  2. I've had it for years. The dermatologist says that moisturizing is better than exfoliating because scrubbing can irritate the follicles. That's been true for me. I hate it those bumps!!
