Keratosis Pilaris
I have this problem from childhood. It is on my arms and legs. Is there any cure? I tried allopathic medicine but nothing happened. In winters, it becomes very red and my skin is dry also. I can't wear short dresses.

Keratosis pilaris is an immune system mediated skin disease which can be brought into remission by certain medications and life style changes. A proper assessment to determine the severity of Keratosis pilaris is needed. Most of the patients do well if they stick to the recommendations. Kindly see a dermatologist for a treatment plan. There are plenty of treatment options available for this condition which means that none of the treatment is 100% effective. Treatment protocols are not standard and what may work for one patient may not work for other. However, be assured that it can be treated and relapses can be avoided.
