No such process: I do not believe, as we have stated here before, that there is such a product or process. ...Read more
No: Eating normal chickens will not cause a person to grow more body hair, armpit hair, leg hair, or even scalp hair. Chickens are birds, but eating them won't cause us to grow any bird features either. Of course, chicken is not a mandatory food (there are many other sources of protein and calories). If an avid chicken eater, one should be sure to use the healthiest recipes and cooking techniques. ...Read more

Be evaluated!: See a dermatologist first and be evaluated to see if what you have is considered within normal range for your ethnic background or whether there is an underlying medical problem resulting in hirsuitism (excessive growth of thick dark hair in locations where hair growth is minimal or absent normally). The dermatologist will then recommend the treatment options available to help reduce the hair. ...Read more
Not really, but?: Not really, but in the case of males, obesity increases Estradiol levels, which can suppress testosterone. Hair growth diminshes. In women who have torso obesity, free testosterone levels are higher, and women can experience more hair growth.

Does hair growth over body stop when the puberty ends? If yes then at what age does the puberty end and does it end hair growth too?
Why do you ask?: If you're male, many women like a hairy guy and most other men are at least a little bit jealous. Even if you prefer smooth, you can shave for now (or get "manscaped") and wait until you're in a stable marriage and let her decide whether to opt for electrolysis / laser. If you're a woman, your physician can advise whether there's a hormonal issue and about treatment if you desire it. ...Read more
Your options: If you have hair someplace that you are sure you don't want it, electrolysis is your best option. Especially if you're a man, you may want to wait until you're married and find out what she prefers. Best wishes. ...Read more
Hair Removal: Hair depilatories can help dissolve your hair on the surface of your skin. Technically, hair depilatories are applied on the skin and work by breaking down the hair's protein structure. These products are available on the market and may come in the form of lotions, gels or creams. Laser hair removal is effective but costly. ...Read more
Not really.: Body hair growth is largely determined by genetics. Applying rogaine (minoxidil) miight help a little. Taking testosterone would might work but you would have severe side effect, acne, oily skin, deep voice, loss of breast mass, enlarged clitoris, etc. Assuming your are a female as indicated in your profile these would be intolerable. Most women don't want body hair! If you are male, ask again. ...Read more

Increased blood flow:
Injury healing usually causes an increase in blood flow to the injured area. This can lead to swelling in the area, as well as in the ankle, wrist, hand or foot beyond the area of injury.
Increased blood flow can make the area fell warmer to the touch than the other side, and hair growth may speed up temporarily, too. ...Read more
No: Whether you get a Becker's (only about 1 guy in 200 is so fortunate) and whether you're hairy over the rest of your body are independent. I hope you like whatever Mother Nature gave you. Richard Gere loves his Becker's, and most of your male friends are at least a little bit jealous if you're super-hairy. You can shave, but consider leaving the Becker's along; many folks will think it's way-cool ...Read more
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. Men can decrease body hair by taking estrogen-like compounds, but enough to do that also causes feminization (ibreast enlargement).Not all of it goes away (women have body hair too).The best answer is to consider targeted laser hair removal which is permanent. 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
I'm a 35 y/o male and for some time now I have noticed that my facial and body hair growth has significantly slow down. Is this part of aging?

Hair growth is increasing slowly on my body. I have to trim monthly. Othrwise they grow much. Head hair falling speedily. I'm 31 years old unmaried female?
Hirsutism + alopecia: Hyperandrogenism may be leading to what sounds like hirsutism (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hirsutism/basics/definition/con-20028919) & male pattern baldness (yes, I know you're female: http://goo. Gl/RrYj7U). Maybe I jumped to conclusion & it's hair loss (alopecia) due to excess thyroid hormone or stress or infection or immune system issue. Bottom line, go see Family Doc for eval ...Read more
Doesn't grow hair: If one starts masturbating in his or her early teen years, he or she will have more body hair by the late teen years. It's just a coincidence, because everyone gets more body hair over those years. Masturbating doesn't cause hair changes (won't cause more hair to grow anywhere, and won't cause hair loss anywhere either). ...Read more
Since the age of 12 I have had excess hair growth on parts of my body that a woman usually shouldn't have. Could I have hirsutism?
It is Hormonal: Excess of hair on the body in women is called Hirsutism. The extent and degree range from normal to slight or severe excess. If you think these are getting worse, you should go see a doctor dealing with Hormone disorders (Endocrinologist) or see a gynecologist. This can be sorted out with further testing to check all your Hormone making glands in your body. ...Read more
