Chicken Skin

on Nov 25, 2007 @ 05:19 pm

All of my life I have had this problem on my upper arms. Little red bumps that look like the pore is inflamed. One day I noticed that many of my friends and family members have the same problem but never thought too much of it. I looked it up and it is sometimes called chicken skin. I mean its not gross and it doesnt get worse but its there and its been there and it bothers me. I don't like it i want it gone lol. Any advice? Thanks Ladies!!!

Exfoliate and moisturize like mad. lol No really, daily exfoliating and moisturizing should help clear it up. I've also found that a good daily rubdown with some witch hazel helps. :)

Buy a loofah and scrub in the shower daily...mine is almost gone after 2 weeks of doing this.

On a side note - I have an allergy to aspartame and the bumps get worse when I drink or eat anything sweetened with aspartame. Since switching to stevia, mine are also much better.

I had a boyfriend who had this. It seems his bumps stemmed from dry skin. When he made a pointed effort to keep his upper arms moisturized, it helped; though, it never went away completely. Perhaps the element he was missing was the exfoliation.

I have this on my upper thighs and hips. Exfoliation and moisturizing has made all the difference! I used to only put lotion or oils on but it wasn't nearly enough. the trick really is to get in there with a loofah, and do it every time you shower. Sometimes I get lazy and stop for a few weeks and it always comes back :(

Thanks Ladies!!!

I will definitely try exfoliating and moisturizing. I will keep everyone posted as soon as I see a change, thanks again!!!!

IT WORKS!!!!! on Dec 18, 2007 @ 09:57 pm

So I tried everything that was suggested and it really works!!!! its been about a week and its almost gone!!!! You have to do it everyday though or it will definitely start to come back. I love touching my arms now and seeing how good they look. I am also not embarrased when my guy rubs my arms. Thank You so much for all of the suggestions!!!!!

That's great! on Dec 19, 2007 @ 11:50 am

I found that when I began, I had to exfoliate everyday for about 2 weeks. After a while, I didn't need to quite as often - probably 2 or 3 times per week. But you do have to keep up with it! I have been "chicken-skin" free for a few months and it has made all the difference! Baby soft skin....ahhhhhhh!

And of course, always moisturize after exfoliating. But you probably knew that.

Thanks!! on May 14, 2009 @ 05:14 pm

I just found out what I had yesterday on the internet. I'm only 15 and mine's pretty bad; it's even a bit on my face! :( I decided to look for a cure and wass sad to here that there os no cure but also happy that there is some treatments. I'll try this now. Thanks for all the suggestions! :)
