Hi @pandaboi, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You are right, they do look like pimples. Connect is a patient-to-patient community – the most important ingredient of Connect is its members, like you. It is not designed to be a community for medical experts to give advice, but is a place to learn from all your shared experiences, insights, suggestions, and tips.

That being said, have you asked your doctor about the possibility of Keratosis pilaris?

@pandaboi, have you consulted with a physician? May I ask your age? Normally this condition is seen in teens and early adulthood.


Yup im in my 20s. Just seen a dr and was given antibiotics. He says it could be a s.aureus infection.
