To treat keratosis your Manhattan dermatology doctor may prescribe a topical steroid cream like Cloderm or Locoid Lipocream. Another effective treatment for keratosis is the intermittent application of topical retinoids. If you are experiencing hyperpigmentation, it can be treated with a fading cream that contains hydroquinone (HQ), azelaic acid and kojic acid. If your skin discoloration is more extreme, consult your Manhattan dermatologist in NYC Dr. Susan Bard for specific treatments.
If you’ve contracted a skin condition that seems like acne or small pimples, but doesn’t respond to the usual treatments, you may very well have keratosis pilaris. A visit to your New York City dermatology office can “clear things up” about the nature of your skin condition and how to treat it. Keratosis pilaris are rough bumps on your skin that some say look like the skin of a plucked chicken.
If you do have keratosis pilaris, don’t be alarmed. It’s a very common skin condition that is made up of clumps of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. These clumps or plugs usually appear on your upper arms and the front of your thighs. Children may develop this skin condition on their faces and cheeks.
