Exfoliating is the key. Not too harsh, that can make it worse, but often, like everyday in the shower with a sugar scrub. I also use a lotion that I've seen recommended all over the internet, it's called Amlactin. You used to need a perscription for it but now it can be found with the other lotions at walmart. I'll post a picture so you know what to look for. For some this skin condition does not show itself until adulthood, like me, and will not go away. The only thing you can do is treat it. It can be controlled but the second you stop it will reappear. I hope this helped.
