Health Tip: Treating Chicken Skin
(HealthDay News) -- Keratosis pilaris, sometimes called chicken skin, is a condition that causes small rough bumps, says the American Academy of Dermatology. Though the condition is generally harmless, some people opt for treatment.
To treat chicken skin, the academy suggests:
Apply a moisturizer with urea or lactic acid after a shower or bath.
Using a loofah or microdermabrasion kit to diminish bumps.
Talk to your doctor about medication to exfoliate your skin.
Consider laser treatment if moisturizer and medicine both fail.
