What causes KP?
How to Know if it’s KP or Just Bumps
One telltale sign of KP is that the condition traditionally gets worse in the winter. Another clue is that patients with KP often have been previously diagnosed with atopic dermatitis or ichytosis, as noted in the British Journal of Dermatology.
Various Types of Keratosis Pilaris
- Keratosis pilaris rubra (red, inflamed bumps which can be on arms, head, legs)
- Keratosis pilaris alba (rough, bumpy skin with no irritation)
- Keratosis pilaris rubra faceii (reddish rash on the cheeks)
