it could be keratosis pilaris and it doesnt itch so you might think its acne... my freind has this and she just moisterizes and takes zinc tablets and puts retin-A on it; i think.

i hope this helps :)

because to me it doesnt look like acne.

It seems you are getting the results you want, but in case you aren't, my derm gave me a cream called Umecta with 40% Urea and suggested I buy a scrubbrush, which has worked well.

You have keratosis pilaris. Try the PC Weightless Body Treatment w/ 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid from Skin Care Solutions and it should be cleared up in a couple weeks. The BHA exfoliates the lining of your pores b/c its oil souluble.

I had KP too.

Used Vitamin A oil and no KP now. It takes few months but it's all gone now.

What did you do with the Vitamin A oil, exactly?

My whole family has this and it is a bitch to get rid of permanently. My daughter was prescribed lac-hydrin but it is messy and never seemed to work. I use an oily scrub (Neutrogena energizing citrus sugar scrub) but Id on't have any real predisposition for "breakouts" there, just the little keratin heads.

I hate KP and acne together.

What form of Vitamin A did you take, and how many IU's did you consume a day?
