Did you inherit bumpy skin?
Bumpy skin can be caused by a host of reasons. If you are allergic to certain foods or pathogens, a chance of bumpy skin irritation could occur. Perhaps your body chemistry is changing and acne sets in. This can cause bumpy skin. However, these particular bump outbreaks are temporary, and is usually induced by a change in body chemistry or allergic reaction.
However, there are bumps that may be caused by genetics which is the case in Keratosis Pilaris aka chicken skin. So, if you have KP, did you inherit bumpy skin? Unfortunately, the answer may be a resounding yes. I covered this briefly in another post, what causes Keratosis Pilaris, but due to its importance it is necessary to go over again.
As you know, Keratosis Pilaris is a skin condition characterized by a buildup of Keratin in the hair follicles which forms into raised chicken like bumps.
The majority of research points to it being largely hereditary. It is estimated that bumpy skin Keratosis Pilaris affects between 40-50% of the population worldwide. Added to the issue is that you are more likely to be a sufferer of KP, if your mom or dad has had it. The research statistics also confirm that between 30-50% of all patients who have Keratosis Pilaris have a family history of the condition.
Another thing to keep in mind is if you are of Celtic descent you are twice as more likely to contract the bumpy skin of Keratosis Pilaris.
Finally, if you are a female, you are more susceptible to the condition than a male would. But, there is hope with research and proven systems such as “Banish My Bumps.” Bumpy skin caused by KP can be a thing of the pass. The great thing about “Banish My Bumps” is it is guaranteed, making it Risk Free. Try it now, just click the picture.
