Interesting. I'm currently awaiting the results of my son's skin biospy. He has what looks like KP on the back of his elbows, but then it started to blister. And since I have DH, I wanted to have him tested. What is your experience of KP blistering? Is it itchy? His gets quite itchy.

keratosis pilaris is almost exclusively caused by a dairy intolerance.


Okay, this clinches it. After the holidays I am going on a dairy-free trial for a couple of weeks... the KP is not a major issue for me, but in addition to that I have some other more aggravating symptoms which I have suspected are related to dairy. And it is a relatively common allergen/intolerance.
Sigh... not looking forward to gluten-free and dairy-free at the same time. I suspect it will be difficult...

MitziG -- can you clarify the intolerance connected to KP? Is it casein or lactose? This is the first I've heard of it. I'll google around tomorrow, but I was hoping you had more information.
