Ok I'm a 26 year old woman and as long as I can remember I've had these goosebump like spots all over my chest. It's not acne or blackheads or anything like that, I practically never have acne, I have very dry skin.
It didn't used to bother me too much but in the past couple of years I've noticed it on my neck now as well-I don't know if it's always been there though and I've only just noticed it.
Is this Keratosis pilaris? I have read up about that and it seems that appears mostly on the arms though, i only have it on my chest and neck.
I think it might be due to shaving, ok I know its crazy but ever since puberty I've shaved practically everywhere, even the normal light faint hair everyone gets I've shaved it all so including my neck and chest. I've stopped doing it now but the bumps wont go away! They're skin coloured and it looks like its to do with the hair follicles, it's like a spot on every hair follicle, some of them look dark like it's the hair trapped-I have dark hair so some of the hair on my body is darker in places even though it's still fine. Anyway does anyone else have this or know what it is if it isn't KP? Thanks
