Skin Problem
I have chicken like skin as the dermatologist refered to it on my back and back part of my upper arms. It is quite ugly as I am too conscious to where sleeveless tops and or low backs. The dermatologist said it is genetic, and there is no treatment. The pimples get itchy and looks like acne especially on my arms.
Do you knwo what this is, what causes it and how it can bet treated or improved.

Big, I have no idea what chicken skin is – it isn’t really a medical term. Did he perhaps mention what the medical name was? Let me know as a new question and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.
