In brief: See you doctor

Pcos has many effects on the skin and hair. There are treatments used to modulate the excessive testosterone effects of this condition.
This may include birth control pills and/or the addition of spironolactone (a water pill) that blocks testosterone receptors in the skin and hair and throughout the body. See your doctor for a thorough evaluation and help.
