I meant to add that she just had this on her arms. I'm not sure that it's the same thing but I thought I would at least tell you about it.
My sister had this and got rid of it using AmLactin. You might have to ask the pharmacist (-- it was originally Rx and I think they called it LacHydrin--) but they do have different brands of it sold over the counter. It does occasionally come back but she keeps it controlled with that lotion.
Keratosis pilaris occurs when the human body produces excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin. There is currently no known cure for keratosis pilaris, however, there are effective treatments available which make its symptoms less apparent. Treatment includes tretinoin or Triamcinolone cream or Adapalene, a retinoid medication. Exfoliation, intensive moisturizing creams, creams and lotions containing alpha hydroxy acids and urea may be used to temporarily improve the appearance and texture of affected skin.
