Keratosis pilaris

Keratosis pilaris (KP) (also follicular keratosis, lichen pilaris, or colloquially "chicken skin") is a common, autosomal dominant, genetic condition of the skin's hair follicles characterized by the appearance of rough, slightly red bumps on light skin and brown bumps on darker skin. It most often appears on the back, outer sides of the upper arm (though the forearm can also be affected), face, thighs, and buttocks; KP can also occur on the hands, and tops of legs, sides, or any body part except glabrous skin (like the palms or soles of feet). Often the lesions will appear on the face, which may be mistaken for acne.
