Can sand like bumps on neck be keratosis polaris?

I have small, sand like bumps on my back. They appeared about 5 days ago. They get itchy when they come into contact with rough cloth and other scratchy things. about 15 minutes ago i applied aloe. aloe seemed to make it stop itching. I was thinking this could be keratosis pilaris.

Hi,

It may be prickly heat. Kindly consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment.

Apply clotrimazole dusting powder on affected area. Take vitamin C tablet 1 gm daily. Take levocetirizine 5 mg tablet daily.

I hope this would improve the condition.

Thanks.
