Question:

I have what seems to be keratosis pilaris on the back of my arms, and back of my legs. Is there any product or treatment i can get to get rid of it?
I also have pigmented skin near my stomach, is there any way to get rid of that? thanks

Answer:

We generally recommend an exfoliant with alpha-hydroxy acids as well as a topical retinoid for the treatment of keratosis pilaris on the body. The ASAP body scrub is a good product you can purchase from our online store. For topical retinoids, it is best to see one of our doctors for a prescription of this.
