No cure is available for keratosis pilaris on face. However, the condition can be managed to a great extent with regular skin care and certain prescription medications. Such medications include topical retinoids, ammonium lactate cream, and moisturizers containing urea and topical corticosteroids. These topical creams and lotions can help to soften the dry and rough skin patches, caused by keratosis pilaris. Even exfoliating the skin with urea and glycolic or salicylic acid containing lotions, and exfoliators can help to remove the dead skin cells, and soften the affected area. However, scrubbing the face vigorously in order to get rid of dead skin cells can aggravate the condition. So, the skin affected by keratosis pilaris needs to be treated gently.
