What Is Keratosis Pilaris (KP)?
Date:7/27/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- KP is a genetic skin condition that affects 40 percent of the world's population, often resulting in patches of dry skin, and little red bumps, on the arms and legs. KP is most prevalent in the teenage years but may continue throughout adulthood. There is no cure for Keratosis Pilaris.(1, 2)

Dr. Alan B. Fleischer, professor and chair of the department of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, recommends keeping skin moisturized to help manage the dry skin associated with KP by using products containing lactic acid, such as AmLactin(R) or AmLactin XL(R).

AmLactin(R) is the #1 recommended moisturizer by dermatologists and is available without a prescription.(3) For more information and to download valuable coupons visit www.littleredbumps.com.
