User avatar Hello,Keratosis pilaris is a genetic condition which starts in early child hood and slowly subsides after the age of 20.Application of mild keratolytics help.More common is phrynoderma due to vitaminA deficiency and fatty acids.You need to improve your nutrition and take foods rich in Bcarotene like coloured fruirs like pappaya.Carrots,mangos,liver,brocolli are all rich sources of vitA.Ok?
