Hello Sintia, Thank you for the question.
Keratosis pilaris, also known as chicken skin disease, is a rough skin surface condition characterized by the appearance of small spots. This condition usually appears in the area of the arms, thighs, buttocks, or cheeks. The surrounding skin can feel dry and itchy. Keratosis pilaris is caused by a buildup of keratin which blocks hair follicles. Clogged hair follicles will widen and cause the skin surface to become rough.
In addition to keratosis pilaris, your complaints can also be caused by other conditions such as eczema, contact dermatitis, folliculitis. prickly heat.
You should consult with your doctor first to ascertain the cause of your complaint. Doctors need to do a direct examination of your skin. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide the appropriate treatment.
Please avoid scratching the itchy area of the skin. You can use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to reduce complaints of itching. Avoid exposure to hot air and you should use loose clothing made from cotton so it is easy to absorb sweat.
I hope this information is helpful.
