Chicken Skin - say what?!

My dermatologist diagnosed me with chicken skin (keratosis pilaris) but said it's harmless, just can be annoying aesthetically. I'm lucky so far that it's just my arms (maybe not so lucky?) but it's driving me batty. Anyone deal with this and have an at-home remedy? I just saw a new cream by cerave so I may try that. I was hoping someone had experience with it.

Hi! My sister has this and she said anything with salicylic acid will help. Just don't use a scrub because that can aggravate it.
