Sign the Keratosis Pilaris Research Petition:
"PLEASE READ -- KP PETITION" -Posted by mlangdon

"I have placed a petition up requesting that dermatological researchers make a better effort to understand the causes of KP. Now that the human genome has been mapped and there are sophisticated computer models available to analyze any information dermatologists could collect about KP, there is more hope than ever, but researchers don't seem to be particularly interested in KP. Let them know that we want better treatments.

Please go to www.petitiononline.com/kp1/petition.html and sign the petition.
