Hi ☺ I wonder if there is an available surgery (or something) to remove keratosis pilaris (KP)?

Calmurid, sal. or lactic acid cream

See a general dermatologist for this condition, compounded creams can help. Laser does not provide a cure. In patients with fair skin, the redness can be reduced with pulse dye lasers, however recurrence can occur. The natural history is that KP reduces with age. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane.
