    Yea I got it on my upper arms, it's not itchy or anything. Apparently it gets better or worse with age. :dontknow:

    Unfortunately there is no cure for it but creams containing retinol is effective but it's really expensive (I haven't actually tried it).

    I have a bad case of it all over my legs. I get self conscious when I wear shorts or skirts and I sit down and people can see it

    I've tried creams that were made for it and spent a lot of money on those trying to reduce its appearance... But nope. Don't believe a word of those creams anymore.

    Yep, I've heard the same.

    After doing a little research, I've been applying AVC for a week or so now. I think it is helping, although the results are incredibly slow.

    I've also recently read up on Krill Oil, and how it may help with the appearance of KP. Anyone tried it?
