What is Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis Pilaris is a common, genetic condition typically associated with dryness and eczema. It usually presents as whitehead-like bumps on the upper arms and thighs. Most people do not even know they have the condition until they move to dry, arid environment such as Las Vegas. So the mainstay of therapy is keeping the skin moist and hydrated. When this fails, we at Summerlin Dermatology may be able to help you using medical office dispensed skin care regimen, prescription creams, microdermabrasion, hydrafacial, and/or chemical peels.
If you are looking for a dermatologist to treat dry, itchy skin in the Las Vegas area, call Dr. Reuel Aspacio at 702-243-4501.
