keratosis pilaris
Bumps on the back of the arms?

If you are prone to bumps on the backs of your upper arms, you are not alone. Half of the world's overall population has a common skin condition known as keratosis pilaris.

Keratosis pilaris (KP for short) is a genetic follicular disorder manifested by the appearance of rough bumps (and/or dots) on the skin. It occurs when dead skin cells do not slough off properly causing the pores to become plugged around the hair follicles.

Keratosis pilaris primarily 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.

DERMAdoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Moisturizing Therapy For Dry Skin
(4 oz) From DERMAdoctor
Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a common skin disorder, typified by chicken skin bumps on upper arms, thighs, torso, buttocks and occasionally the cheeks. Excess skin forms around individual hair follicles, creating the characteristic minute, rough, grater-like bumps. KP Duty incorporates medically proven technology including ingredients for hydrated and healthy skin. Medically potent levels of Glycolic Acid blends with Urea, the dermatologist recommended humectant, to soften and smooth away the driest roughest skin.

DERMAdoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Body Scrub with Chemical + Physical Medi-Exfoliation
16 oz From DERMAdoctor
Medical-quality exfoliation requires more than scrubbing. Dry skin, flaky patches and chicken skin bumps are held together by bonds that physical exfoliation alone cant break. KP Duty Body Scrub acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion session in one, delivering serious medi-exfoliation.
Allows dermatologist-recommended skin therapies to provide deeper, more thorough results. Helps prepare skin for self tanning and post-bathing treatments (including body acne, keratosis pilaris, dry skin concerns, shaving bumps, ingrown hairs and bleaching). Dermatologist-recommended chemical exfoliants dissolve the glue that cements epidermal cells together. 
Smooth, non-abrasive synthetic beads lift away dead skin cells without inflicting trauma to the epidermis. Calming, anti-redness agents are the ideal antidote to the sort of irritation and sensitivity typically associated with routine in-office exfoliation. Skin is resurfaced and retexturized; soft, smooth and radiant.
