Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have felt lumps in my arms since I was a teenager, and I am now 35, and I feel a lot on my thighs and arms. The ones on my thighs are underneath the skin, but I can see them slightly when I stand. I think it itches, but I am unsure if it is my skin or the lump that itches on my thighs. Can you please tell me if this is something I should be worried about?

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

You might be suffereing from keratosis pilaris, a treatable condition that can be improved with treatments like microdermabrasion, peel treatment, keratolytic, retinoid creams, etc. The fact that your keratosis pilaris will improve and never come back or be 100 % cured is not something that can be promised. Since it may be a tendency for people to develop it again, its recurrence may be minimized by maintenance cream. And this is a very benign condition, so there is nothing to worry about.

I hope this has helped you out.

Take care.
