Abstract

Background: Keratosis pilaris rubra is a common but rarely reported condition characterized by follicular-based hyperkeratotic papules on a background of erythema. It can be embarrassing and symptomatic for patients, particularly adolescent boys. We sought to explore the efficacy of pulsed dye laser (PDL) in the treatment of keratosis pilaris rubra. Methods: Eight patients were treated with PDL for keratosis pilaris rubra. Results: All patients reported noticeable improvement after one to four treatments. Conclusions: PDL is an effective, easily accessible, and underused therapy in the treatment of keratosis pilaris rubra.
