Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a genetic disorder of keratinization of hair follicles of the skin. It is an extremely common benign condition that manifests as small, rough folliculocentric keratotic papules, often described as chicken bumps, chicken skin, or goose bumps, in characteristic areas of the body, particularly the outer-upper arms and thighs.

Keratosis pilaris is a congenital skin condition where hair follicles become plugged; usually on the arms and legs. Not threatening, just lumpy.
