| | Excess facial hair...can anyone help please?
This is my first post but it's about something that is bothering me so much. This last few years, I've been suffering with thick black hair around my chin - I swear if I didn't pluck them every day, I could grow a goatee.
Trouble is, although I joke about it with my daughter, and sister....it actually really makes me paranoid about anyone seeing them. So much so, that I dig for the hairs that I can feel even before I can see them, but they feel enormous though....consequently, though, my skin breaks and it looks an awful mess...but I just can't stop myself - as soon as they break through I have to get them out.
I've tried bleaching, but because they're so thick they show anyway, and I've tried hair removal creams....which remove all the fine fluffy hair, which makes the thick ones stand out even more.
I went to the doctor, and she took some blood tests, but all the receptionist said when I phoned for the results was that I was post menopausal (I'm nearly 49 by the way) and the doc just said there was nothing they could do.
I cannot afford laser treatment, or else I would be going for that.
Can anyone tell me what the cause could be please? It really is driving me mad.
Thanks very much for reading this
