Keratosis Pilaris

February 6th, 2009

I was browsing through the yahoo answers for questions regarding oil pulling. Someone had asked if oil pulling would help their Keratosis Pilaris condition. While do not have the position personally, I have read on various forums that oil pulling has alleviated the symptoms of the condition in people that have tried it. If anyone else has any feedback or personal experience on the condition, please comment.

That is all for now

BTW, Keratosis pilaris (KP, also follicular keratosis) is a very common genetic follicular condition that is manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin. – Wikipedia

    So, a common question I’ve been getting is how to tell the difference between other skin ailments and KP. The first one was rosacea. Sometimes KP resembles rosacea and is improperly treated. It’s also sometimes misdiagnosed as acne and treated with acne products, which can make KP flare up. And last but not least, KP can sometimes resemble eczema on the arms or legs. Eczema treatment will not hurt KP, but will definitely not help either. Since I’ve had experience (either personally or with clients) with all of these conditions, I’ll write a post early next week with pictures to help you in this area. Stay tuned!
