Abstract: Hypertrichosis in the pediatric age group can be troubling to both patients and parents. There is no well-established method for managing this problem in young children. We describe the successful use of a cream depilatory agent for removal of excess hair from the face and body of a 6-month-old girl. Excellent cosmetic results were obtained. The risks and benefits of the use of depilatory cream in young patients are analyzed. Other options for hair removal in children are also reviewed.
