Hi, I have had keratosis pilaris my whole life. It started getting really bad 2 years ago, at the same time I started developing fibroids in my breast and noticing other hormonal imbalance symptoms. I am hoping, that if KP is exacerbated by hormonal imbalance, Iodine therapy will help. I just started two days ago, but I have already gotten some relief form my fibroids:) I am very hopeful.
Anyhow, my KP improved quite a bit with Omega 3 and Zinc supplements. Two weeks after I started taking them most of my bumps were gone, but the redness only got 50% better. For the past month and a half I have not been taking the supplements much because I have been cleansing with PB shakes. I have never been able to build up to the recommended dose, but I am getting good results anyway (not just with my KP). Some of my bumpiness is back but the redness has improved, most noticeably on my face and arms. Over all I think my KP has improved by 70% since the beginning of this year.
I’m still looking for 100%. I have a good feeling about Iodine therapy, but if I am lucky enough to get more improvement it will be hard to know if it’s a result of the iodine, because I plan on continuing my cleansing as well. Take care and let me know if the chromium or anything else you try works. Thanks.
