Do you have dark bumps on your leg that look like the skin of strawberries? Then, you may have strawberry legs, also known as comedones, which are actually hair follicles or ingrown hair that are trapped under the skin. These pores may also contain bacteria, dead skin cells, and oil. Though it’ not harmful, it may make you self-conscious while wearing shorts. Common causes of strawberry legs include keratosis pilari or chicken skin ( it occurs when your skin produces excessive keratin, which blocks the hair follicles), dry skin, folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles due to bacteria or fungi). It is important to keep your skin well moisturized. If you have a dry and rough skin, your epidermis may be more vulnerable to irritation caused by shaving. This can also lead to strawberry-like appearance of your legs. A chemical peel or a laser hair removal may be a permanent solution for your strawberry legs, but it can also easily be taken care of by using simple home remedies. Here are some natural solutions to get rid of the dark bumps.
