Hello I'm Dr Chip

Could you please post a photo for me on this page?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Great

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Not sure how visible they are to you

Got them--thanks

How long have you had these?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I've probably noticed them a year ago. More have appeared and causing me concern.

OK

This looks like what's called keratosis pilaris--a totally benign kind of dermatitis

Nothing at all serious and usually it can be treated with either Eucerin or Aloe Vera lotion

Please let me know if you need any more information
