Keratosis pilaris
Keratosis pilaris is a common, autosomal-dominant, genetic condition of the skin's hair follicles characterized by the appearance of possibly itchy, small, gooseflesh-like bumps, with varying degrees of reddening or inflammation. It most often appears on the outer sides of the upper arms (the forearms can also be affected), thighs and face (chin). Often the lesions on the face may be mistaken for acne.

Keratosis pilaris is a common disorder of the hair follicle that occurs in children. How common keratosis pilaris is in adults is unclear, with estimates ranging from 0.75 to 34% of the population. Treatment includes the application of topical preparations of moisturizers and medications such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, or urea to the skin.
