Do you have “chicken skin” and are you looking for a cure? In the video below, YouTuber Michelle Mez tells us her strategy for controlling her skin problem. While Mez is not a medical expert by any means, she does give a solution that worked for her skin. Her secret? She recommends using Clearasil Ultra exfoliating scrub, which contains salicylic acid.
The phenomenon of having small whitish/reddish bumps on your skin may be keratosis pilaris. According to the Mayo Clinic, keratosis pilaris results in acne-like bumps that are non-itchy and can be hard to treat. That said, the Mayo Clinic indicates it’s often not serious, despite being difficult to cure, and can disappear by the time one is in their 30s.
Others say that chicken skin may be linked to autoimmune diseases and potential gluten intolerances, reports Huffington Post.
All that said, watch the video below with a grain of salt knowing that it’s one person’s experience, which may or may not apply to you. As always, if you are in extreme pain or notice anything abnormal, please consult a medical professional.
