imageHypertrichosis is characterized by excessive and abnormal hair growth anywhere on the skin and may develop after prolonged local irritation, such as application of a cast, injury, or a bite. Pressure garment/silicone therapy is often used to prevent hypertrophic scar formation. The adverse effects of gel sheet application include rash, skin breakdown, cessation of scar responsiveness, pruritus, contact dermatitis, and dry skin. We report on 7 burn patients who developed hypertrichosis following application of pressure garment/silicone therapy to prevent hypertrophic scarring.
