Keritosis Pilaris
Hmmm.... Just another I did not know that was EDS.  I was doing some more reading about EDS because in my NL appointment I was made aware that my muscles that hold my eye in place hurt when I move it to the extreme left or right.  So of coarse that had me thinking hmm connective tissue and yes it can be the EDS ... go figure.  While I was researching I found that there is increased cases of Keritosis Pilaris with EDS patients.  My 8 year old was first diagnosed with KP when she was like 2.  She gets these little bitty bumps that look like goose skin...bumpy.  At that time she had them on her face and I used some cream to get the little patches of off her face but she has them all over her legs....oh EDS and all the ways you present yourself!

  Oh I know what u mean I have those, but can only feel mine...my dad has them like u have them...fibroid cysts...I think....mine just r not as noticeable....but I can feel them....not sure if they r  Sebaceous cysts are small lumps or bumps just under the skin. To be more specific, they are closed sacs that contain keratin -- a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking protein...as I do not think I have ingrown hair in the places I get these...hmmm but this best describes what they r like.....I know I was told it was keratin filled....and was a EDS issue, but heck if I can find the info now...lol...I had one that was oval shaped on my eyelid for yrs and one day it  was bothering me I rubbed it and the keratin popped out and now it is gone....I still have others but this was the largest and longest one I had  had.....glad it is gone now...just wonder about the others....

  Well the one I had on my eyelid for yrs is gone it was weird as I always felt it as I rubbed my eyes, and this one time I did so, I felt this odd thing and here the  stuff came out of it...it was solid...so now that one is gone and has not come back..it has been a few months too....so hopefully it was the right situation for it to release...I had just had a warm shower...so how knows...lol...

The ones on my hands have gotten really big and less hard so I am hoping they are on their way out.  I had lost all bumps on my hands after chiari surgery and was sad when they returned.
