Could becker's naevus at a part of body leads to excessive hair growth over all parts?

How to stop the body hair growth permanently. Plz help sir. My second question is- how can I reduce the hair density that I have.

Tough question: See doc.

There's waxing, electrolysis, depilatory creams, too. Just think in 50 years you may be sad because you don't have enough hair! ...Read more

Hirsutism + alopecia: Hyperandrogenism may be leading to what sounds like hirsutism (http://www. Mayoclinic.
