Hirsutism

Hirsutism is when a woman has excessive hair growth. The hair is usually thick and dark, rather than fine and fair.
Excess hair may appear on the:
  • face – such as the upper lip or chin
  • neck
  • chest
  • tummy – in a line from your belly button down to your pubic hair
  • anal and genital area
  • the front of your thighs
Hirsutism is often associated with other symptoms, including:
  • oily skin
  • acne – a skin condition that causes spots to develop on your face, back and chest
  • hair loss (alopecia)
  • a receding hair line around the front of your hair
  • an enlarged clitoris (the small soft bump in front of the entrance to the vagina)
  • voice changes – such as a deeper voice

When to see your GP

It's important to see your GP if you have hirsutism – especially if you have severe or unusual symptoms – as it can cause psychological harm, http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/hirsutism/Pages/introduction.aspx
