Keratosis Pilaris Rubra – Chicken Skin Red Bumps
Keratosis Pilaris Rubra
Keratosis Pilaris Rubra – What Is It?
Is a very common skin altering condition often referred to as “chicken skin”. If you have keratosis pilaris rubra, you are one of millions. Around the globe, keratosis pilaris rubra affects an approximate 15% of the adult population and approximately 20 to 40% of all adolescents. Varying in degree, cases of KPR can range from minimal to severe.
Most people with keratosis pilaris don’t know they have it. The difference with Keratosis Pilaris rubra is that it is easily visible. While KP resembles goosebumps, it is characterized by the form of small, rough lumps covering all areas of skin. Primarily, it manifests on the back and outer sides of the upper arms, but can also occur on thighs and buttocks or any body part except palms or soles.
Keratosis Pilaris rubra, although is the exact same condition as Keratosis Pilaris, has one specific difference, the color. KPR has a red coloring, making it visible to all, so it tends to be confused with acne.
Keratosis pilaris is unattractive but completely harmless. KPR tends to be worse during the cold months or other times of low humidity when skin looses great amounts of moisture. It may also occur and/or worsen with pregnant women or show up after childbirth.
Keratosis pilaris rubra is a hereditary skin condition, running strongly in many families, occasionally with linked with dry skin and low melanin (pale skin). The manner in which it is inherited varies, but often fits into an ‘autosomal dominant’ pattern – suggesting that there will be a 1 in 2 chance that each child of an affected parent will come into the condition. Keratosis pilaris rubra appears when extra keratin builds up around the hair follicles. This is frequent during childhood, and most serious during adolescence. Keratosis Pilaris Rubra often it clears in adulthood, especially if the person takes sunbaths regularly. The most important though, is to be safe when exposing to solar radiation.
Is keratosis pilaris rubra hereditary?
Yes, please read the information above.
What are the symptoms?
Most people find their keratosis pilaris rubra unsightly. The skin has rough or spiky texturing as though it has permanent chicken skin bumps. Sporadically keratosis pilaris rubra itches, and the person should avoid scratching at all cost.
What does it look like?
Small, horny, disseminated, red bumps are most frequent on the backs of the upper arms and on the fronts of the thighs. It can also affects the torso, back, buttocks and, in less frequent forms, the face and eyebrows as well. If a plug is pulled off, a fine coiled-up hair may be found, but not always.
Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Diagnosis
There are no explicit tests for keratosis pilaris rubra, since any dermatologists can recognize it immediately. If you are looking for certainty, an ambulatory, almost painless biopsy can be performed. This biopsy is performed by scrapping of some skin and extracting with tweezers a bump.
Is There a Cure for Keratosis Pilaris Rubra
There are no known cures, but it this is mainly because there is no disease, it is just an aesthetic issue. It can clear during adult life, but still, 20% of all white population will have it.
Frequent Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Treatments
No treatment clears it satisfactorily, rapidly. Ordinary emollients (moisturizers) are of partial benefit. Creams containing salicylic acid, lactic acid and/or urea are sometimes felt to be more successful. Quite a lot of simple types can be bought or obtained by prescription, or over the counter, and there is no lead to be gained from using expensive cosmetic or vitamin creams.
What can you do?
General measures to lessen skin dryness can help. Our product, BIOSKINTREATMENT lotion, in fact works wonders for Keratosis Pilaris Rubra
Many people find keratosis pilaris lumps aesthetically disagreeable and therefore look for treatment. Rarely, they may happen to become infected because of scratchy tight-fitting clothing or abrasive self-therapy, in which case first you must treat the infection. A noteworthy inflammatory constituent may be present that should be relieved with topical steroid therapy.
Treatment options for keratosis pilaris rubra focus on exfoliating or softening the skin to lessen keratin clogged pores and to eliminate the redness. Treatment at first begins with adherence to non-pharmacologic method and fulfillment of daily living practices that will not deteriorate the condition. An imperative first treatment step is to use a gentle cleansing agent like mild soap with light abrasive properties. The goal is to clean and open the pores without over drying, this can be done in a perfect, natural way with our product: BIOSKINEXFOL.
Other measures to keep away excessive dryness include taking lukewarm, short showers and using a humidifier, particularly during the winter months when low humidity dries out the skin.
BIOSKINTREATMENT™ lotion dissolves with enzymes and evens rough skin. It has a moisturizing effect as it triggers the proliferation of water holding molecules within the skin that will stop dry skin. Gets rid of excessive keratin and thus unclogs pores. Its enzymes dissolve the excess keratin and melanin, so they eliminate the redness.
It is also anti-inflammatory, while it helps to attract water molecules when first applied. BIOSKINTREATMENT should be applied to the affected area twice a day for smooth skin.
Other Keratosis Pilaris Types
When keratosis pilaris occurs on the cheeks, the affected area is not only red but it also feels rough. The characteristic “reddish” aspect of this type of facial Keratosis Pilaris gives it the clinical name of KP Rubra Faceii.
Another variant on the face, called “keratoses pilaris atrophicans faciei”, causes a worm-eaten like atrophy of skin. When the outer eyebrows are affected the condition is known as “ulerythema ophryogenes”.
There are several different types of keratosis pilaris, including alba (rough, bumpy skin with no irritation), rubra faceii (reddish rash on the cheeks) and related disorders.
Keratosis pilaris atrophicans: a genetic clogging of the pores and follicles with keratin, which leads to the death of the follicle. After the follicle has died the hair falls down leaving behind an unsightly scar.
Sometimes, the hyperkeratotic buildup entraps the hair within the follicle. The trapped hair gets bunched up and may lead to a red irritated bump that may fill with pus. These pus filled red bumps are often confused with bacterial folliculitis or with acne.
Keratosis Pilaris Lotion
BIOSKINTREATMENT is a biological solution for keratosis pilaris.
The lotion is powered by a complex biological compound with enzymes that “digest” or breakdown the hard keratin plugs of the hair follicles and dissolve abnormal keratin and tissues, releasing their amino acids for the rebuilding of healthy tissues.
It boosts the production of glycosaminoglycans the water holding molecules in healthy skin. It contains copper peptides that speed skin recovery and antimicrobial peptides that control microbes. It addresses all the factors involved in keratosis pilaris, acne, inflammation, scars and skin blemishes.
The lotion also contains natural salicylic acid extracted from the Willow Bark Tree and softens scales, unclogs pores and acts as a biological activator of both the elimination of dead and damaged skin cells and the renewal of healthy cells.

The lotion is made with a natural biological ingredient, collected from live land snails, the same they use to quickly repair their own skin and shell when damaged. It is contained in the serum secreted by the snails, (we gather it through a process that is safe for them). It is a viscose liquid that is made into an odorless white cream with no alien, synthetic chemicals. Analysis of the serum has determined that it contains activators of skin growth factors and antimicrobial peptides.
Also presents natural anti-inflammatory and immune modulating proteins, glycoproteins, glycosaminoglycans (a group of polysaccharides with high molecular weight that contain amino sugars and often form complexes with proteins. Also called mucopolysaccharide) and copper.

BIOSKINTREATMENT grinds down keratosis scales and horny crusts through enzyme dissolution of keratin and hydrolysis of abnormal tissues, and prevents the growth of actinic keratosis scaly formations
- Dissolves dead and dying cells on the topmost micron of skin (part of the outer layer that is no thicker than a sheet of paper, slowly and over a period of time)
- Digests damaged cells and keratin plugs within the dermis by the action of biological enzymes
- Stimulates the use of the aminoacids that the enzymes free and activates the fibroblast stem cells which favor the proliferation of new healthy connective tissues and all the structural elements of healthy skin
- Stimulates the formation of the extracellular binding between cells, thus improving skin strength, cutting down on fragility.
- Restores the capacity of the skin to remain hydrated by stimulating the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, the molecules that give skin its capacity to keep in moisture. This helps to thicken the dermis resulting in a lessening of sagging and less fine lines and wrinkles.
- Neutralizes free radicals by the action of its potent antioxidants that also have an anti-inflammatory effect.
- Inhibits microbiological activity of dangerous, pathogenic skin bacteria, including acne.
- Regulates blood vessel formation and oxygenation within the capillaries in the skin contributing to its proper nourishment.
- Regulates dermal fibroblast proliferation and excess collagen, and thus prevents and reduces abnormal scars such as keloid and hyperthropic scarring and slowly but consistently gets rid of ice-pick scars or pitted acne scars.
BIOSKINTREATMENT also treats the dry, scaly skin that is present when skin is affected by actinic keratosis or ichthyosis vulgaris by exfoliating and thus reducing keratin clogged pores. And it helps to remove ingrown hairs and treat folliculitis (barber’s itch)
BIOSKINTREATMENT LOTION clears skin of keratin bumps and regenerates healthy skin
The product is made with the same base as BIOSKINCARE plus Salix Nigra (Willow) Extract and Amorphophallus Konjac Root Powder for a more potent keratolytic effect that cleans the excess horny material of the skin by degrading keratin plugs and dissolving debris, damaged, abnormal and necrotic tissues. It decongests the skin as the enzymes in the snail serum and the natural salicylic acid in willow bark extract help to ‘digest’ all damaged structures into their amino-acid and other components, which also favors the regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin.
