Abstract

Background. Khite (also known as fatlah in Egypt) is a manual technique of temporary vellus hair removal that is widely performed in the Middle East. Methods. The technique of khite is reviewed as illustrated. Results. Khite is an effective method of removing unwanted vellus hairs. Conclusions. Dermatologists in all parts of the world should be familiar with khite, because the ease of international travel may bring patients to their attention who have khite-association complications such as erythema, folliculitis, and secondary pigmentary changes.
