Keratosis pilaris, commonly called chicken skin, is a hereditary skin condition that affects half of the population.
It is caused from the build up of excess skin cells within the hair follicles. The hair follicles then become inflamed which results in small, rough bumps that generally occur on the upper arms or upper thighs.
