Q: What really works to get rid of keratosis pilaris (the bumpy skin on the backs of my arms)? — Liz
A: Liz, I've asked Dr. Paul Cohen, a Toronto-based dermatologist working with Aveeno, to answer your question.
Dr. Cohen's Advice:
Keratosis pilaris, which is sometimes called "chicken skin," is something I see maybe 50 times a day. It's a ubiquitous problem. It's a variant of eczema, where the skin around the hair follicles becomes thick.
