Re: Probably nothing

Sounds like just a gray hair.Take a tweezers and grab it at the base and yank it out.I get these all the time,way too many now.This will most likely grow back and will need to be repeated when it shows itself again but it will at least be gone for a while.Nothing at all to worry about.Gray hairs can pop up from time to time in people of all ages really,so you don't have to be "old" to get them.Marcia

Re: Probably nothing

is this something that is embedded in the skin in the forehead? has he been to the doctor to see what it could be?

Re: Probably nothing

Grab the disinfected tweezers, and give it a pull (of course with your boyfriend's permission).
Then examine it under a magnifying glass and let us know the results.

If it's not hair....then it shouldn't be there (my excuse to remove it).
Stuff like that gives me the "itch" to instantly pluck!!!

Methinks I should have been in medicine

Keep us posted!!!!
