Cases of Severe Keratosis Pilaris

The following are pictures of people suffering from cases of severe keratosis pilaris. These are shown both for those have KP, as well as those who are simply curious as to what severe cases of this condition look like.

Please keep in mind that these are very rare cases and these are by no means ‘the norm’ when it comes to KP. The cause of the severity of these cases is the even higher amounts of keratonin produced by these people’s bodies (in some cases 5 to 10% more then patients living with normal cases of keratosis pilaris).

The following photo is of a woman who has an extreme case of KP on her knees and legs:

This man has a more severe outbreak on his arms. While his symptoms aren’t quite as extreme as the case above, they are worse then the average outbreak. While this is a much more common part of the body for someone to have KP, the bumps should not be as large or pronounced as his are.

This man has both severely large “bumps” as well as extreme skin reddening and discoloration. This is by far one of the most severe cases of keratosis pilaris that we’ve ever seen.
