In brief: Need to see a doctor
Excessive body hair can occasionally be due to a hormonal imbalance, so a visit to a primary care doctor or an endocrinologist is needed to evaluate the symptom. However, body hair more likely just runs in the family, and is not a medical problem. If it is familial, it will be very difficult to change the amount of hair. The trait is in the genes.
