    KP on forearms

    Hi everyone!

    For those of you who have/had KP on your forearms, have you had any success in diminishing it? I have KP on both my upper and forearms, but my forearm KP is soooo much more stubborn than my upper arm KP.
    Has this been the same for you guys as well?

    Thanks,
    yay for me

    i have kp on my arms and forearms. it sucks. i tried the coconut oil and pumice stone for a while until my derm said that in the long run the pumice stone would make more bumps and dots appear 10X worse. so i stopped and tried the oil alone but it didnt work. so im looking for a way too

    Interesting story, I have KP on my legs and on my forearms and upperarms. Those are the only places that I have it, not on my face or anything.

    My mother also said that she never noticed any bumps on me when I was a child, I had extreme weight gain when I was in my teens, and I think that this might of contributed to it? Since pregnant women get it as well, even though they have never had it.

    Too bad nothing is sure fire to work, and I have scrubbed before and used moisturizing cream, but that didn't work at all. Didn't diminish the bumps. So.....

    I was wondering if you get rid of it and it isn't a genetic thing, does it stay gone forever?

    weight gain

    The idea of weight gain contributing to KP is an interesting one, and there might be a link there, but I got it when I was 13 and very thin -- about 110 lbs. I'm now 19, 125 lbs, and it's still going strong...

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
