Keratosis Pilaris is a common condition that affects people of all ages, race and ethnicity. It is more common in men but it can occur in women as well. The term Keratosis Pilaris was first used to describe those who had puffy, itchy, painful bumps on the bottom of their thighs. Today, it is known to be more complex than that.
There are different types of Keratosis Pilaris. The most common type is called follicular keratosis. This is the most common type of Keratosis Pilaris and it is usually associated with men. The other types of Keratosis Pilaris are known as diffuse keratosis and keloid keratosis.
Follicular Keratosis is usually caused by an infection of the skin. This is called follicular mine infection. It is caused by a bacterium called P. acnes. Other causes of follicular Keratosis are hematogenous (blood vessels) disease and seborrheic keratosis.
Diffuse keratosis is the most common type of Keratosis Pilaris. It is caused by hematogenous changes to the skin. The most common cause of diffuse keratosis is trauma to the skin. Other causes of diffuse keratosis include hematopoietic cell tumor, skin surgery, and seborrhea.
Keloid keratosis is the other most common type of Keratosis Pilaris. It is caused by inflammation of the dermis. It can occur on the skin or surrounding soft tissue. Other causes of Keloid Keratosis include ankylosing spondylitis, seborrheic dermatitis and eczema. Some people develop this condition because of an infection of the scalp, but it is not clear why.
Treatment of Keratosis Pilaris depends on the cause of the problem. If there is an infection of the skin, the doctor will prescribe an antibiotic or topical antibiotics. If the problem is due to seborrhea or inflammation of the skin, the doctor will recommend oral or topical antibiotics. He may also recommend a surgical procedure called Epididymitis surgery.
Surgery for Keratosis Pilaris can be either a procedure called Epididymitis surgery or a laser surgery. The Epididymitis surgery uses lasers to remove the infected tissue from the skin. Laser surgery is very successful at getting rid of the infected tissue. Some patients are treated with antibiotics.
Treatment of Keratosis Pilaris can include a combination of medications, antibiotics and surgery. Many people do not want to take antibiotics or use topical medications for their condition. The topical medications that are used to treat this condition include creams and ointments.
Corticosteroid creams are usually prescribed for patients with a high level of inflammation. Corticosteroid cream helps to reduce the inflammation, and helps to reduce redness and itchiness of the skin. It is not recommended that corticosteroid cream is used on very dry skin or on very oily skin. Also, corticosteroid cream is not recommended for children under the age of twelve.
Vitamin A cream is usually prescribed for those who have an allergic reaction to vitamin A. The anti-parasitic properties of vitamin A can be used to treat keratosis pilaris. It is not recommended that vitamin A is used for children under the age of twelve because vitamin A can also be toxic to children. Some doctors also use a combination of oral and topical corticosteroid creams to treat this condition.
The anti-parasitic properties of hydrocortisone are used to treat keratosis pilaris. The anti-parasitic properties of hydrocortisone help to prevent scarring.
Vitamin C cream is used to help reduce scarring and to reduce the inflammation. Vitamin C is also used to help stimulate the production of new skin.
If there is a history of keratosis pilaris in your family, surgery is usually the only option. If the cause of the condition is not known, or if it is not clear why the condition occurs, there is no cure for keratosis pilaris, the doctor will likely recommend some form of therapy to prevent future outbreaks.
