15 years of Keratosis Pilaris on my legs and arms has led me down a path of many treatments which do not work. 1) Upping Vitamin A & Fermented Cod Liver 2) Exfoliating 3) Jojoba oil every day (noticed slight positive results) 4) Liver cleanse (reduction in the roughness) 5) Attempting several Gut cleanses and failing
Dry brushing (Towards the heart to get lymphatic system working) has always helped with the feel of the bumps, how rough they are, however nothing has ever taken away the redness.
This week I have gotten them all over my upper back. In the past 3 weeks Ive been eating bread daily which I usually do 1-2 times per week.
I now have the small lumpy white kind all over my back.
I've always notice bloating, constipation, gut irritation after gluten, dairy & sugar though have never done anything about it. Gut Flora. I know I've got to cut the gluten, dairy (unless raw & fermented)
Intuitively I feel that my diet has always been the cause. It started at 12/13 when I ate nothing but crap in school and out of school.
Of course its worse in winter, and better with sunlight (VIT D) though the little red bumps (which contain a little ingrown hairs)
Anyone had this case, suffered for years, finally beat it?
Anyone feel that high Insulin levels are linked, have gotten insulin responses down for long enough to see serious results?
