Summary

We report six patients with chloracne, unresponsive to conventional therapy, whose lesions were cleared by treatment with EMLA® (eutectic mixture of lignocaine [lidocaine] 25 mg/g and prilocaine 25 mg/g) topical anaesthesia and light cautery. To the best of our knowledge, this form of treatment for chloracne has not previously been reported.
