Welcome to the Keratosis Pilaris Awareness Blog
This blog is intended to establish awareness about Keratosis Pilaris (KP) here and on my site, HelpForKP.com.
Keratosis Pilaris is characterized by the appearance of small rough bumps on the skin. Primarily, it appears on the back and outer sides of the upper arms, but can also occur on thighs and buttocks or any body part except palms or soles.
If you have KP and wish to discuss this condition with others, visit the Keratosis Pilaris Forum. A message board community specifically for KP sufferers.
