this is something for which you need to see your doctor
medical reasons can cause this excess growth of hair
The primary cause of excessive hair in females is due to an overproduction of the male hormones.
This may be produced both from the adrenal glands or ovaries.
You need to approach your family physician and get yourself tested for this hormone.
It is a simple test and will determine the status.
High testosterone can be treated with various medicines like spironolactone, steroids and Contraceptive pills.
This works well and will reduce the hair conveniently.
You can also use Laser hair removal for the unwanted hair.
so the next step for you now is to approach your doctor and discuss about this growth of hair
also ask for testosterone level testing
discuss these medicines too
any further questions?
I do not have a family doctor at the moment, can I go in to a walk in clinic or the clinic at the hospital? Or do you think it would be more beneficial to seek out a doctor taking more patients?
