    I used Amlactin and exfoliated with a loofah in the shower and noticed a slight improvement after a few months

    >what causes it?
    It's mostly prevalent in Celtic and Anglo-Germanic ancestry people. It has to do with the northern parallel environments. God knows what. I don't think the Scandinavians have it, though. Maybe it's due to some Atlantic coastal effect, in which case. Providing some sort of evolutionary protection against something.
    What's common in that area? Sea fog? bog water? I know most of Northern Ireland/Scotland and England is like moors and bogs, and real muddy and foggy.
    It's probably not something to do with Vit D deficiency seeing as no other northern ethnic groups like Scandis or Inuits etc have it.
    It must be the local environment of the Northern British Isles. My bet is some sort of Atlantic coastal thing, maybe some wind currents from Atlantic Jet stream bringing in some sea fog or whatever...God knows, I'm just theorizing, trying to come up with some ideas.
    It is an interesting subject though. Would like to know more.

      Can attest to it not being related to vit D deficiency. I get enough sunlight and take supplementation. No change whatsoever.

      Lemme know what you find out!

        Yeah I think Vit D patch fix was simply increasing the brightness of the skin color in order to allow more UVs through. I don't see how adding texture to the pore in order to both raise and close it would help with that. I'm just curious as to why, but I will look into it.

        What's your ancestors local environment like? Don't need to Doxx yourself with precise name of location, just describe the climate, the humidity/dryness, how it looks and feels. Maybe we can find some common ground.
        Also if you can go on this website and look up the phenotype which most closely resembles your family in general.

        I used to have it. Exfoliating and using coconut oil lotion after a couple times a week fixed it for me.

        If you were able to fix it, then it was probably psoriasis and not keratosis pilaris. The latter is genetic and irremediable.

          Psoriasis looks nothing like picrel or what I had. Psoriasis looks gross as fuck.

          I also looked it up, and Mayo clinic advises exactly what I said. Good luck op. Keep moisturized and exfoliate. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/keratosis-pilaris/symptoms-causes/syc-20351149

            Exfoliate and moisturize for a couple days got rid of mine, but it comes back if I stop so not a cure, I only do it if I know I will be shirtless, it also got a lot better with time but I'm not sure if it's due to eating better, getting more sun, swearing more, or doing several cycles of exfoliation

                This. Same.
                Guys who knock skincare or fashion "cause gay" are unironically the same guys who are going to save some used up roastie who doesn't care for them outside of their wallet or just to save them from being alone.

    CeraVe SA cream and scrubbing. Good luck!
    Mine's already smooth as a baby's bottom but the redness is still there. It's slowly fading away though.

    Get a Japanese wash cloth and a good cleanser. I use neutrogena stubborn acne body wash for my back acne and it ended up making all my skin better in a month.

    KP is basically your body making too much keratin, which plugs up hair follicles. It's entirely a cosmetic issue. For a lot of people it's also temporary and will go away by the time you are about 30. For some people, including me, its permanent and will never go away. I'm 35 and I've had it since my early 20s.

    But there are some things you can do to make it less severe.

    My dermatologist prescribed me clindamycin lotion to help with folliculitis (basically the KP gets inflamed and looks more like pimples). Then for OTC stuff she has me use a 10% benzoyl peroxide wash in the shower, and Cetaphil Rough and Bump lotion (20% urea). The urea acts like an exfoliant and helps break down the keratin. The two lotions are once a day, I use the clindamycin after I shower at night and the cetaphil in the morning.

    It doesn't make it all go away, but it does improve the appearance and feel of the KP.
