Finally — An Effective Treatment for Keratosis Pilaris
I don’t remember either caring or noticing the keratosis pilaris bumps until I became a teenager. That was when I began to hyper-analyze almost everything about my appearance—I wanted boys to like me, and I knew that my appearance played a big part in attracting a boy. I also wanted to fit in with my girlfriends and wear stylish clothes, but my options were limited since I needed to hide my skin. I became self-conscious and stopped wearing sleeveless shirts in the summer. I couldn’t stop wearing shorts so I found longer shorts. I would always think about how awful the bumps appeared. I did notice that some other people had the same keratosis pilaris bumps on the back of their arms, and this made me feel less bothered, but only temporarily.
