Hi, I've always suffered from Keratosis Pilaris on the tops of my arms and thighs which hasn't particularly bothered me much, but now aged 26, it's suddenly gotten much worse. My entire legs are covered in ugly red spots which have now spread to the backs of my thighs and even my bottom! Rather embarrassing. What's odd is my skin isn't that rough or as bumpy as it was before but the spots appear more red/purple and aggressive. My doctor wasn't sure I even had kp at first because my skin is actually quite soft. They told me that absolutely nothing will help, which has gotten me really down, especially as it continues to get worse. Previously I found that getting a tan during the summer months had helped improve it but even that hasn't helped for the past couple of years. Has anyone else experienced kp suddenly getting much worse? Can anyone recommend anything? I've tried using a gentle body scrub, coconut oil, a moisturiser with 10% urea, taking vitamin E and cod liver oil supplements, and alas- just leaving it be. And still it gets worse!
Edit: I've added a photo of my thigh which is especially bad, just above the knee.
