Is Keratosis Pilaris Contagious?

Read Transcript

Keratosis pilaris is not contagious. It's one of those things that people think look rashy sometimes and so they are worried they might be able to catch it from somebody else, but it's a variant of eczema. You see it in young kids on the cheeks sometimes, you see it in adults prominently display behind their arms, the back, the buttox, and the backs of their thighs.

It is absolutely not contagious, it's annoying to the person that has it, but it's not serious at all.
