My Daughter: I Think I Have Like A Mild Case Of Keratosis Pilaris 😉 On My Thighs And Elbows 😉
Me: Err…..what is that?!
My Daughter: Like Little Spots Or Bumps That Are Like Red. I Have Always Had Them.
Me: Do they hurt or itch?
My Daughter: No. Why?
Me: Just asking. You’ll probably grow out of it, but you can try gentle exfoliation and using soap-free cleanser
My Daughter: Well They Itch Sometimes.
Me: Might be because skin dries out in winter
My Daughter: But I Have Always Had Them. Since I Can Remember. Like For Years.
Me: It starts in childhood
My Daughter: Wtf? Are You Googling It?
Me: It gets worse around puberty, but usually improves after that. Often disappears at adulthood. Lol, I’m on the NHS website
My Daughter: But I Think I Have That. And There’s Like Nothing You Do Moisturizing Can Make It Less Noticeable But Not Go Completely.
Me: Moisturising and exfoliation help, but it will fade in time. I’ll have a look at it tomorrow.
My Daughter: Apparently It Doesn’t Go.
Me: NHS website says it does normally
My Daughter: Well Google Doesn’t.
Me: The NHS is a website run by trained medical professionals
My Daughter: And Google Is Cool.
