Keratosis Pilaris

My youngest DS has this skin condition. The doctor says it is harmless. He has bumpy skin (like permanent goosebumps) on the backs of his arms and a little bit on his legs too. I'm trying to find out if there's anything I can do about this.

barbszy - I didn't know there was a name for this! LOL Dominic (my 4 yo) gets this too on the back of his arms mostly, but sometimes on his back also. Again, I use Anew Intensive Skin Therapy and it usually clears up in a few days.

Take him to a dermatologist. My ds had it in his early teens. He was prescribed two creams to be used nightly after his shower. Was also told to use a buff puff on the upper arms.
