Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
You may use either kojiglo forte cream or cleraz plus cream, twice daily. Both of these creams are pigment reducing cream.

Brief Answer:
Remedy for keratosis pilaris

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

They seem to be Keratosis pilaris. In this case you may use Brexoxyl 4% cream. Use it twice daily on arms and legs. It contains benzoyl peroxide and it would dry up raised bumps as well as help exfoliate the keratin plug with entrapped hair.
