    How To Get Rid of Chicken Skin Naturally

    Natural way to get rid of chicken skin. Treatment for KP is simple, and involves exfoliation of the skin, along with moisturisation and reducing the inflammation. A number of exfoliating creams and lotions are available in the market, popular among them being Retin-A, which is a form of Vitamin A acid. Another widely used cream is made of a combination of benzoyl peroxide and Adapalene, which apart from being an exfoliant, is also anti-inflamatory in nature, and being less costly, is more in demand. Triamcinolone, a corticosteroid, is another alternative which is used in the treatment of both eczema and KP.

    Certain sulfur compounds present in creams and lotions also help in the removal of KP.

    The above chemicals tend to leave scars which can be removed by simple home remedies such as application of a paste of granulated sugar and curd or cream. Essentially, the Lactic acid in the curd or cream acts as an exfoliant as also a moisturizer. Other methods include application of Vitamin E Oil or coconut oil. Omega3 fatty acids present in fish will help lubricate the skin and regulate the formation of keratin, if added in the diet. Rubbing or scratching the affected areas should be avoided as it tends to increase the problem.

    The most common advice given to those with keratosis pilaris is to expose the skin to sunshine for about fifteen to thirty minutes. Breakouts of this kind of keratosis are usually worse during the winter seasons. It is highly recommended to get a little more sun whenever possible.

    Be careful, though, not to overexpose the body so as to dry it out too much. Keeping the skin hydrated is still very important. Using a humidifier to increase humidity levels while indoors is also recommended for adequate skin hydration. Another good way to keep the skin moisturized is to use only mild soap. Using soaps that contain urea, propylene glycol, and lactic acid, as well as other emollients have been found to soften the hardened tiny bumps on the skin. Avoid using soaps with harsh chemicals and anti-bacterial additives.

    Some advocates of natural remedies also advise an exfoliating scrub made of equal parts of olive oil and sugar to gently scrub off the keratinized skin. Applying moisturizers after bathing is also a good way to keep the moisture in.

    One other natural way by which keratosis pilaris can be treated is through a few simple dietary adjustments. For one, staying away from foods that have been known to cause allergic flare-ups is a good start. Some people who might not know which foods they are allergic to could start a food diary and mark off those that result in allergic reactions. Including healthy servings of fruit and vegetables in everyday diet is always a good practice for anyone. Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as flax hemp seed, walnuts, salmon, and tuna are highly recommended. Drinking ample amounts of water is always advised as the body functions better when it is properly hydrated. Following a healthy balanced diet, regular exfoliation, and moisturizing are just some of the home remedies for keratosis pilaris.

    Treating this skin condition does not happen overnight. It often takes some time for the skin bumps to disappear. As this skin condition is not really dangerous or life threatening, most people simply wait for the condition to disappear on its own. In a number of cases, the appearance of these skin bumps eases from age 30 onwards.

    KPAF (atrophoderderma vermiculatum) is not KPRF. KPAF if left untreated will cause scarring to the skin.

    The above treatments may help ease the condition but due to the serious scarring that can occur with KPAF you should consult a derm to discuss treatment also.

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.
