About Keratosis Pilaris and littleredbumps.com

There is no cure for Keratosis Pilaris (KP) and the cause remains unknown, however it tends to run in families(1). People with KP may experience flesh-colored or red bumps around hair follicles on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and cheeks, extremely dry skin and, in some cases, itching(1,2). It is important to be aware that other medical conditions can mimic KP, so people with these symptoms should visit a doctor to confirm a diagnosis.

Littleredbumps.com and The AmLactin(R) family of moisturizers are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any medical condition. Some skin conditions may be worsened by moisturizers, so people should always follow their doctor's skin care recommendations.
