A nasty skin disease, which looks/is more or less awful.
It's not harmful, but a cosmetic problem, which could turn into a mental problem.
People, who have it, are ashamed to have to, especially at summer.
Of course there are also people, who give a fuck about it.
You can get it nearly everywhere: upper arms, fore arms, but, legs and cheeks.
It's genetic, at least one parent must have it.
It's not to heal, but to alleviate.
The skin is and feels very dry and in most cases it's got red dots, in rare cases black dots.
They look like little pimples, but they're not.
You could press them out, which is very painful.
But it's not to recommended, 'cause it may ignite and it's only get worse.
What does the skin good:
During the shower, use a body scrub, best with a peeling-glove and rub gently.
After it, use a shower gel, which is ph-neutral an moisturizing.
On the still wet skin use a body lotion with 10% urea.

Keratosis Pilaris is a skin disorder in which makes your skin appear with a bunch of red dots in maybe face, arms, and mostly legs. People with KP are usually very ashamed of it, because well, we all want those smooth summer legs. Though they’re some people who do not give a fuck about it 🤷🏼 ♀️. Keratosis Pilaris is not curable, but is treatable there are many; lotions, creams body scrubs etc for it but its best recommended to ask your doctor about it and they will recite you the best type of treatment to use. For all people who have it, remember you are not alone and though it may seem nobody else has it, KP is very common! Dont be ashamed...
