    Heard of Keratosis Pilaris?

    Primal Fuel
    Any chance diet can help? I have it and so does my daughter, although she seems to have it worse.

    Thanks!

    Yep, I have had this for as long as I can remember on my upper arms, and sometimes elsewhere, like my legs. Eating primal hasn't made it go away, but my skin is much more supple and softer, so in that way it has helped tremendously. It isn't as noticeable, and my skin feels pretty much normal, I just have little red dots.

    Some believe its a vitamin A or EFA deficiency. Vitamin C also helpful for inflammation. Also maybe Zinc. Make sure gut absorbing well.

    I have KP

    I have KP, I don't think there are many things to make it go away. Some say that you grow out of it, although I still havent and Im 31. Usually they say to loofah once a week and be sure to moisturize. KP is cause because our skin does not shed the way it was meant to, this causes a build up of skin which blocks the hair follicles, causing the bumps or chicken skin as some call it. I usually just try to moisturize and use the loofah. Im sure some kind of Omega 3 or coconut oil wouldn't hurt either. Maybe coconut oil on the skin would help also, I just thought about that, coconut oil seems to be a cure for practically everything.

    Must be the Vit A then! Mine has improved since going PB, and dry-brushing twice a week helps too.

    I have it, it went away when I went sugar free a few years ago. It's definately improved since I went primal.
