Education is one of the best way to prevent and treat any kinds of ailments such as skin problems. Read carefully as it may be simple but really a serious issue.

Description of Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis Pilaris is another type of common skin disease and it is commonly known as Chicken Skin. According to studies, it is hereditary and commonly found in the upper portion of a person's shoulder or sometimes in thighs. It affects 50-80% of children and about 4 out of 10 adults. This may not be curable but it should be controllable but how? Let's educate ourselves in order to prevent and control this disease.

Ways on how to prevent "Chicken Skin"

Here are the following simple tips:

1. Moisturize your skin- You may use moisturizing lotion with Lactic Acid that helps soften the bumps
2. Applying Oil like coconut oil or pure vitamin E oil
3. Exfoliation- You can use sugar scrub or rough sponge, these will help eliminate the dry and old skin.
4. Indirect Skin treatment - Oatmeal Bath

How to do it:
- blend a cup of oatmeal until its finally fine
- mix it with your warm bath while water is running
- clean right away after bathing

5. Avoid too much hot water as it may dry your skin
6. Consult your doctor and get a prescription
7. Last option is laser treatment although this is very costly.

Prevention and education is still the best medicine to any kind of illnesses but if symptoms persist, see your doctor right away.
