Hair on Top of Nose

I am 19 and there is hair on top of my nose. This is really embarrassing. Is this a disorder and is there any permanent solution to this?

Re: Hair on Top of Nose

This is fairly common with people who get a lot of sun exposure on the face. It can also be genetic. A professional electrologist can easily permanently remove the hair for you. If you are in the sun a lot, use a high spf sunscreen on your face, paying particular attention to the nose. The nose is also a common area for skin cancers.

Re: Hair on Top of Nose

Thanks for the advise. However, I am rarely in the sun often and it's not genetics. Can it be an external issue instead? I used to have acne and I use tissues alot for my nose because I have year-long allergies.

Sometimes repeated friction to an area can stimulate hair growth. The body sees the friction as an injury and will grow the hair to protect the skin.

Re: Hair on Top of Nose

after reading this topic i looked in the mirror closely and noticed very tiny and fine hair on my nose too.

i do not use tissue alot and its definitely not genetic.

could these be blackheads? i think mine are.

how long are they?

Re: Hair on Top of Nose

I know it's not blackheads because I haven't had acne on my nose in months and it looks like hair rather than blackheads also. I have dark hair so its more noticeable. Thanks again Choice. Is it possible for the hair growth to stop if I discontinue using tissues and not cause friction or is this a permanent condition?
