Keratosis Pilaris

Question: I have these red raised pimple looking things on my upper arm

Answer by Dr.Lin: It sounds like KP (Keratosis Pilaris) it is also known as goose bumps or chicken skin. KP is most common on deltoids, thighs, face and arms. It can become irritated or inflamed, Linage Pore Refining Microdermabrasion Scrub helps smooth the skin and then follow up with Linage 12% Lactic Moisturizer. For more extreme cases you can use a bit of Linage Pore Refining Microdermabrasion Scrub directly on your Clarisonic Pro. Use daily Linage Sunscreen SPF 30 if the area is exposed to the skin. KP is extremely common and can usually be maintained by using skin care products.
