Health Tip: Treating Chicken Skin

(HealthDay News) -- Keratosis pilaris, sometimes called chicken skin, is a condition that causes small rough bumps, says the American Academy of Dermatology. Though the condition is generally harmless, some people opt for treatment.

To treat chicken skin, the academy suggests:

  • Apply a moisturizer with urea or lactic acid after a shower or bath.
  • Using a loofah or microdermabrasion kit to diminish bumps.
  • Talk to your doctor about medication to exfoliate your skin.
  • Consider laser treatment if moisturizer and medicine both fail.
