My son, age 9, was diagnosed with keratosis pillars and after seeing his primary doctor and dermatologist, they both said that there isn't a medicine to cure or treat it. While the rough skin.tiny bumps do not hurt, he's of age and starting to play a part in his self esteem. I give him black soap and Cetaphil for moisturizer in the morning and organic coconut oil with aloe vera gel for moisturizer at night. I'm curious if anyone has ever dealt with this skin issue and how you went to treat it. Im interested in any OTC med, holistic treatment, creams, etc.

Thanks in advance

why didn't the dermatologist prescribe a topical retinoid? Confused 
if his age is an issue, rx strength salicylic acid is also an option. 

you can get urea creams from amazon. alldaychemist for tretinoin; adapalene/differin is also effective and it's otc now.  

i've been dealing with this my whole life, so let me know how, if any, these work for you. how long have you been trying this cetaphil/coconut regimen?

Thanks for your response. The dermatologist had mis-diagnosed him with a different issue prescribe him with hydrocortisone. Once I saw it was the exact same brand and strength she gave him for eczema, I went right back to her office and told her to try again. She said there is nothing she can try beside acidic skin peel but do want to try that until it's super necessary. 

So since his keratosis diagnosis, I give him Gold Bond's Rough and Bumpy Skin Cream. It's been less than a month so no noticeable improvements. He still uses Dove soap and black soap to wash. I'll update this with any improvements or if it's gotten worse.
