Skin Conditions/Keratosis Pilaris and crazy facial sloughing


Hi Zac,

Thanks for being a volunteer on AllExperts; it's a big help to the online community! I have two questions:

One: What, if anything, can I do about the Keratosis Pilaris on my thighs? It's unsightly and it makes me self-conscious about being intimate with my partner.

Two: The skin on my face is very flaky -- so much so that I start my days off sometimes by "exfoliating" my face with a piece of packaging tape! I find that moisturizing with coconut oil is really helpful, and I'm trying to increase my water intake. What else can I do?



You didn't mention our age, but keratosis Pilaris usually will go away after age 30. However being prone to dry skin does make you more susceptible.

My advice would be to try a good zinc lotion with tea tree oil for both your face and thighs. Not only will it moisturize, but also significantly help with the flaking.
