Treatment Of Keratosis Pilaris

This is not a curable disease but surely a controllable disease. If you manage to remove the excess keratin that surrounds the hair follicle, you can keep your skin healthy.

Glycolic acid works as a good defoliator. Your doctor may prescribe you a good glycolic acid formulation. Lactic acid is also a good exfoliating agent that can be used successfully. Urea is a good keratin softener. Consult your doctor about the right formulation that may also contain a little vitamin A derivatives that peel away the excess skin. Keep your skin moisturized to fight the dryness.
