    Hi everyone my name is crystal. I have been having this problem for as long as i know and i am a 26 yr old woman. The thing is that i am the only one i knew until now that has had this problem and when amongst other people all is see is healthy skin and can't stop staring . The more i read all the other things on this site i keep noticing about the redness in the skin. i'm of color so i naturally don't really experience too much redness just the dark spots on my legs that is very noticible because i am brown skinned. I just wanted ot know are there others out there like me with the same probelms? hopefully we can work together to cure this ourselves.

    You are soooooo not alone...I thought I was the only one and have often been called "shallow" because I too have a HUGE problem with this KP (never even knew there was a name for it)...believe me when I say I am actively searching and my kitchen has become my "lab" lol...but yeah I can identify with your situation being brown skin just makes mine appear worse.

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.
