What Are These Bumps on The Back of My Arms?
Keratosis Pilaris are those bumps that you may have yourself or you may have seen on someone else. The back of the arms is the most common area to have Keratosis Pilaris. Keratosis Pilaris is also common to appear on the front of your thighs.
What is Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis Pilaris is a condition where your hair follicles are subtly accentuated. They’re sticking up slightly and there’s a base of redness around them. Sometimes those areas are also blotchy in color or there’s more redness in the area. It is often referred to as chicken skin or described as bumpy. Many who have it are conscious of the area and displeased with the appearance.
How can I get rid of Keratosis Pilaris?
Laser hair removal in Raleigh can remove hair in the areas of Keratosis Pilaris. But often the hairs that are surrounded by the bumps are very fine, and often light colored hair. There is speculation that laser hair removal might be effective, but no evidence.

Is There a Way to Prevent Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis Pilaris is not harmful or life-threatening. It’s very common in people who have dry skin or are prone to skin conditions like atopic dermatitis. Fortunately, they usually don’t itch or bother people, rather it is the appearance that is bothersome.
