Chicken Skin Disease Treatment

Feeling tiny rough bumps on the outer-upper arms and thighs is not entirely unique to certain individuals.

This skin condition might be mistaken for other skin conditions especially during the winter season.

Chicken Skin Disease also known as "keratosis pilaris".

Its actually a genetic disorder that involves the keratinization that occurs in the hair follicles.

Other skin conditions that may be associated are atopic dermatitis, xerosis, and ichthyosis.

Chicken Skin Treatment -

(1) Expose the skin to sunshine for about fifteen to thirty minutes, not to overexpose the body so as to dry it out too much.

(2) Increase humidity levels while indoors is also recommended for adequate skin hydration.

(3) Using soaps that contain urea, propylene glycol, and lactic acid, as well as other emollients have been found to soften the hardened tiny bumps on the skin.

(4) Applying moisturizers after bathing is also a good way to keep the moisture in.

(5) Staying away from foods that have been known to cause allergic flare-ups is a good start.

(6) Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as flax hemp seed, walnuts, salmon, and tuna are highly recommended.

(7) Drinking ample amounts of water is always advised as the body functions better when it is properly hydrated.

(8) Mixing equal parts of olive oil and sugar can give you an effective exfoliant that you can use in order to slough off the keratin plugs as well as other dirt particles from your skin.

(9) Using apple cider vinegar to wash the area affected by keratosis pilaris could take the place of using lactic acid washes and creams.

(10) Adding several tablespoons of Vitamin E oil to your bath water could help seal in the moisture in your skin and improve the appearance of your keratosis pilaris.
