Customer Question

I have gone thru' numerous skin archives and have not been able to find anything like what I have.I sure hope you can help me.The hardest part is in the description so please bear with me.
My face is covered with this long white hair now.When I pluck it out,it's all sticky and stretches out.Then there's these thick black hairs and when plucked they don't look like anything I've ever seen.The root is a glossy black and the whole hair is gelatin looking.There's this clear strands that wrap around the shaft with these tiny spheres adhering laying all along it.Sometimes the root ball looks like a chunk has been taken out.
The long white hair looks like candy floss,and I wonder if it's why the black hairs are so thick and wet looking.
All of my pores have enlarged and look like black heads but they are not.
Whatever is going on,my eyebrow hair has it as well.I had stopped needing to pluck my eyebrows yrs ago.Now,the white hairs are growing from my brow down to my eyelashes.They stick to that thin skin and make it painful to pluck.My whole face is either covered with the white hairs or the black ones,no area free.Could this be a fungus?Oh please help me Dr.
