welcome to HealthcareMagic
Keratosis pilaris is a autosomal dominant genetic follicular condition and is manifested in form of rough bumps on skin.Since it is related to genes there is no known cure and only palliative treatment is possible.The regular treatment given contains use of vitamin A;Tretinoin;and even steroid.Presently you are on treatment which you need to continue.
