Helloo! I have thick coarse facial hair problem + acne ? Suggest me some tips and advice.. Thank yoi

Get workup: Being a young woman is difficult enough with a man's beard & acne! you deserve nothing less than a workup for possible masculinizing tumor or ovarian syndrome causing this. Don't settle for just treating symptoms, though electrolysis & acne rx may help. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I have a problem with facial hair:(?

What do you suggest if I have a problem with facial hair:(?

Manage it: If you're a female, manage any underlying hormonal problem in conjunction with your gynecologist or primary caregiver, and get the facial hair removed. The large majority of people will urge you to do this. Laser and electrolysis are both great and won't cost much. ...Read more

What is wrong when a female has problem with facial hair and is it treatable and how ?

What is wrong when a female has problem with facial hair and is it treatable and how ?

Hirsutism of PCOS: Excess facial hair (hirsutism) in female is often caused by androgen (male-hormone) excess, commonly from polycystic-ovarian-syndrome (pcos). Adequate treatment of pcos, which is difficult, often improves facial hair, but takes time. Some med such as spironolactone can help, but again takes many months. Laser or electrolysis are probably most effective and fastest. Consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe it's you!: Around 5% of men never do get a decent beard or much chest hair. Nowadays, many (most?) women claim they prefer this, and such guys don't go bald. Joel Kinneman (photo) isn't complaining, and neither did Paul Newman, the first Hollywood star to show off a truly fit body. Be grateful for whatever Nature gave you, and make lifelong fitness a habit -- you'll look fantastic even with no beard. ...Read more

No simple answer: This is not unusual and may represent a slight delay in onset of puberty. However your pediatrician will likely review your growth curve and may obtain some basic lab studies and x-rays to assess your hormonal status and growth. ...Read more

My problem is regarding my facial hair. I am 19 years old male and I am struggling with my thin facial hair , is there any supplement for faster growt?

Your genes: How thick or thin a beard you can grow is entirely genetic. I am going to assume that you are normally masculinized with normal erections and ejaculations. It has nothing to do with your virility. Many women in the usa and europe prefer a man with a thin beard; if your culture expects you to grow a thick one, you have my sympathy. Teen idol justin bieber (photo) can't grow a beard either. ...Read more

Hi, I am a freshman at highschool and I have not started puberty and i think that is a problem. I have no underarm hair, leg hair, or facial hair. My penis is 2 1/2 inches erect and it makes me have very low confidence.

You : You might be very normal. Your pediatrician or primary doctor can check an lh ANS fsh, to see if you have testicular failure. Most teenage males do not look like porn starts, but niether do teenage girls. ...Read more

I have adrenal gland problems and facial hair growth, do I have cancer?

I have adrenal gland problems and facial hair growth, do I have cancer?

It depends: Adrenal glands are a source of hormone production, one of these hormones is a male hormone. So if the gland is enlarged it can cause excess production of hormones. It can be a benign adenoma or rarely, it is due to cancer of the adrenal gland. You need to see a physician. A simple ct scan of the abdomen can show your adrenal gland size and shape , which is how the proper diagnosis can be made ...Read more

Possibly hormonal: Unusual at age 20. Could be a hormonal issue (e.g., low testosterone) or many other things. See your doctor, have an open and honest discussion, and get a good medical workup. You may need to follow up with an endocrinologist, but a discussion with your primary care doctor would be a good starting point. ...Read more
