Abstract

Thioglycolic acid is an organic thioacid used as an agent for chemical peels in the approach to periocular constitutional hyperchromia in hemosiderin deposits, such as ochre dermatitis of the legs, with reports of its use in post-inflamatory hyperchromia, showing promise as a therapeutic adjuvant for the treatment of these dermatoses.
