hi . . . this hair growth is called "lanugo," and most people w/serious EDs get it. you may notice the fine hair on your back and hands as well, and possibly in other places. the way i understand it, lanugo develops as your body does its best to insulate itself when it is starving.
i don't know what you can do about lanugo while it's there, but it will probably fall out when you are completely healed (a doctor would be able to tell you for sure). some (possibly all, i don't know) babies are born w/it, but it goes away as the baby gets older.
good luck . . . lanugo is a really common occurrence.
p.s. you said that you were recovering, which is great, but my guess is that you probably developed the lanugo because your body still isn't at its normal, healthy state yet. just wanted to say that!
