I have Keratosis Pilaris (as I found out last night) I always had little bumps on my arms and I never thought anything of them, but after some googling last night I figured out that they were KP. I had some Emu Oil lying around because I've tried it with my hair and excema before. After only one night of putting Emu oil on the affected Kp areas, my upper arms look dramatically better. After ONE NIGHT. I was so surprised. Any one reading this should definitely give it a try as it has worked very well for me so far (one night). We'll see if it keeps doing amazing work!

Hello, I have suffered from Keratosis Pilaris for 8 years since the birth of my son, on my upper arms and have tried just about everything. Finally I tried an emu oil lotion and 90% of the bumps and redness have cleared up. The lotion I have been using also has aloe vera, hyaluranic acid, and lavender. After bathing, and sometimes exfoliating my upper arms, I use a alpha-hydroxy toner on a cotton pad to wipe my upper arms and then use the lotion, doing this twice a day for the last month has completely changed how I feel about showing my arms, which is great as summer is here. I have read that emu oil is mostly Omega 3-6-9 oil, and some feel that that is what we are missing in our diets which may be the root cause of the Keratosis Pilaris, but during the whole time I suffered from this affliction I had been taking daily supplements of a high end norwegian fish oil supplement and hadn't noticed any improvement until I started using the emu oil. I really hope this helps everyone out there who had suffered from this condition. I have been an avid follower of this site for the last 3 years and is has helped my chronic sinusitis immensely (Thank you Ted from Bangkok! ) and I am glad to finally have something to offer in return.
