In the past, therapy for pseudoatrophoderma colli included the use of a quartz lamp, keratolytics, topical corticosteroids, superficial radiation, and oral vitamin A. Spontaneous clearing was reported in 1 patient. Kauh et al treated a patient with 5% lactic acid in hydrophilic ointment, with relief of itching and scaliness and a decrease in pigmentation. [8]
