Abstract

Unwind or incise has been the standard of management for removing hair tourniquets. The hair ends are usually difficult to hold and unwind as they break at the ends easily, and using scalpels or needles to get under the hair tourniquet is difficult when the involved appendage is swollen and leads to more trauma to the injured area. This is the first case report that describes the removal of hair tourniquet using a depilatory cream.
