Post hair on nose

yes, i realize this is pretty stupid but it's bothering me a lot! i swear i'm the only one on this freaking planet who is growing hair on his nose!! is there anything i can do to stop this? it's not really that noticable but if you're close enuf it's there. it just isn't natural. help anyone? i don't know what really caused the hair to start growing somewhere where it shouldn't be but...i want it gone! any help would be appreciated. thanks

i worked with a guy years ago that had the same problem..and i agree its bad..go to a dr that does laser hair removal and get it taken care of once and for all...it will be $$$ but worth the money

What kind of hair are we talking? I have some "peach fuzz" on my nose and I am a female. I have never really paid attention to anyone else's nose so I'm not sure if it's normal either but I'd like to know cuz I have a hormone imbalance.

what kind of hair? just HAIR i guess. like i said it's not really noticable unless you're close up. but if I can see it in the mirror then so can everyone else. i'm pretty sure it has something to do with the overly large pores on my nose and the fact that I use to get huge zits...it's been through a lot problem is that if i can pluck them, they shouldn't be there..and sometimes they grow back really dark and it looks like a blackhead.

Exactly where ON your nose is the hair? I have never seen anyone with hair ON their nose, just IN it.

did you every use vaseline on your nose, i hear that encourages hair growth.

wouldnt plucing them make the hairs go back thicker, which would be worse. if its not very noticible until your close to the mirror i'd just leave it. bleach it perhaps.

I have hair on my nose, too and I try to pluck it but it's so small and frustrating when I do! I am talking about the sides of the nostrils is where the hair usually grows. I also have redness on the sides of my nose due to acne I guess. Anyone know how to deal with the hair and the redness? Thanks.

Well, we have hair on our entire bodies so it's normal

I have little tiny white hairs on my nose but I highly doubt anyone can see them.

http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/idea.gif Why don't you think about trying laser therapy.Lasers can take the hair away easily and painlessly. I did my entire legs,and then some.If that doesn't appeal to you,if it's only a few hairs try tweezing,if that idea freaks you try waxing.The Body Shop sells a small pot of wax for $5,heat it up on the stove,let it cool and then dip your finger in the wax and put wax on nose hairs ,in one clean swipe . Let the wax cool for a second(20).and pull quickly off.Tip; use a little cream on the finger you dip into the wax,the excess wax will slip easily off your finger after it dries.And don't worry about getting it off ,jojoba oil.vitamin e oil,does, the trick.Wash face with cold water after.Good luck.

pluckin those small tiny hairs is a pain in the *** though. it's bigh enough to be noticable but tough to pluck! see i realize we have hair all over our bodies but in some places they're very light and tiny and not noticable. this is the case with our nose as well but for me they started to grow longer and blacker, which makes no sense to me what so ever.

laser surgery on your nose? that's kind of odd ain't it. and i don't think there's any place around here that does that sort of thing.

i'm glad i'm not the only one with this problem though

Hey hah,if you think lasers are weird on the nose,well I'm SURE that much stranger places have had a laser. Think about it ,what's weirder;spending time plucking nose or any other hairs,waxing nose hairs,or just getting it zapped once and for all.

Hi! Just thought I'd add my two cents in, too. If you're already plucking, why don't you just perma-tweeze? I'm sure that's still an option. Go to a full-beauty salon and ask them to recommend someone.
