Is keratosis pilaris contagious? If you’re a sufferer of Keratosis Pilaris you know the struggle when it comes to managing your harmless yet super stubborn condition. Keratosis Pilaris causes small, itchy bumps to appear on your skin. You may notice the condition suddenly worsening during pregnancy and after childbirth. And it may make your skin look like it has permanent goose bumps. These are usually small and itchy red or white bumps that are harsh to the touch.
Is keratosis pilaris contagious?
The short answer is no. As it’s not contagious it can’t spread. Dead skin cells blocking your pores/hair follicles are the cause of keratosis pilaris.
Typically tend to appear during the winter months, when the air is dry and may improve during the warmer summer months when the humidity is higher. But every patient is different and can report different appearance and symptoms.
Patients who suffer from dry skin, eczema, asthma, excess body weight or hay fever may be more prone to suddenly develop Keratosis Pilaris.
