keratosis pilaris redness

Question: Hi Doctor, I have keratosis pilaris on the back of my upper arms. I've tried various products and getting rid of the bumps is usually achievable but the redness always persists. I've been on different forums and it seems a lot of people have the same problem. It's frustrating because the redness is much more of an annoyance than the bumps, which are somewhat mild for me. Do you have any suggestions to control the redness? Thanks.
Answer:

DermStore offers many products for such issues. I recommend Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit or Summers Laboratories Keralyt Gel. To address the redness I recommend Rosacea Care Willowherb Serum with Vitamin K and/or Rosacea Care Willowherb Soothing Spray with Strontium, both of which are formulated for rosacea skin but may be helpful in reducing your redness. Please feel free to contact me with any further skin care questions. Best skin care wishes.
