Hirsutism Information and Treatment

Hirsutism is defined as excessive and increased hair growth in women in locations where the occurrence of terminal hair normally is minimal or absent. Generally it refers to a male pattern of hair, i.e. in the moustache and beard areasor more hair growth than usual on the arms and legs. Hirsutism is very common. Hairs may also grow on the chest or extend from the groin area on to the abdomen and thighs. What is considered normal for a woman and what is considered hirsute depends on factors such as culture and race. It is a fairly common condition, affecting about 1 in 6 people in the United States. Signs of the disorder typically begin to appear between the ages of 12 and 16, about the same time as PCOS symptoms begin to exhibit for the first time.

Hirsutism is a condition in which too much hair grows on the face or body. Although hirsutism can occur in both men and women, usually only women consider it a problem. In most women, vellus hairs grow on the face, chest, and back and give the impression of "hairless" skin. Terminal hairs are the longer, coarser, darker, and sometimes curly hairs that grows on the scalp, pubic, and armpit areas in both adult men and women. The facial and body hair in men is mostly of the terminal type.
