WOW I am amazed that ppl are saying veganism helped clear it! That is amazing. I, too, have KP. (I hate hate hate the chicken name, that sounds disgusting to me) I have never heard of these mites before, but that sounds gross. I always read it was an overabundance of the protein keratin production and drinking carotene juice can help block that over production.
Hannah- How long do the results last? Is it something you basically have to do everyday for the rest of your life in order to keep the bumps away? (dramatic sounding, I know, but it's a serious question!)
I've had this problem for ever! About a year or two ago I started using tanning beds which worked, then I stopped, and now I have the bumps back again. I went back tanning, which didn't really work this time. I've been seriously considering getting a treatment done at one of the salons near me, which costs $60 per treatment and I was told it typically takes 5-7 treatments. Pretty costly. I'm hoping to try the scrub and have good results, but your feedback to my question would be really appreciated.
I know this forum is a little dated bit I'm hoping to get some help with this...
Has anyone had success using coconut oil for their KP? I'm looking for some natural solution - one that isn't too expensive or time consuming. I've read a bit about it but not sure how to go about using the coconut oil (some say in the shower, some say as a lotion post shower )
Anyone have experience with this?
I've struggled with it on the backs of my arms for years and going vegan cleared it up DRASTICALLY. For the small areas that are still affected though, I use a pumice stone in the shower and cocoa butter three times per day. I've heard good things about coconut oil but I've had so much success with the diet and cocoa butter routine that I haven't looked any further into it. I'd love to know if it works for you though!
