Avatar f tn I AM A AFRO-AMERICAN WOMAN, WITH FACIAL HAIR LIKE A GUY. I ALWAYS TEND TO SHAVE WITH RAZORS AND NOW MY SKINNED HAS TURNED DARKER AND AWFUL LOOKING. WHAT CAN I DO FOR THAT?
Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.
Avatar m tn If your acne scars are like pinkish marks they're probably superficial and will fade within a year, using bio-oil can help. You can have laser treatment for scar removal. Men and women can also have laser treatment to remove unwanted hair and females can take the contraceptive pill Diane35 to combat both facial hair and acne.
Avatar n tn I was very self conscious about it growing up- for I couldn't find anything about girls with nipple hair. I actually had laser hair removal when I was 16, but it has all grown back which is unfortunate because it cost a lot! I still pluck when their long enough, but they do become ingrown and I end up having some scarring as well. My boyfriend never even noticed when we first got together, I couldn't believe it. It goes to show that men miss detail. It was a huge relief for me.
Avatar n tn But I too cannot wait till I can afford laser hair removal.
Avatar f tn My husband believes that this was a loose hair that got trapped but I noticed a follicle at the end of the strand, which leads me to believe that the hair actually grew up there. I am thankful that removal was pain free, but am dreading another occurrence.
485259 tn?1519050626 I have a feeling a lot of men would use them while watching football games if they could get away with it. Speaking of men, if you happen to have brothers, they will try to make you laugh. My brother Jeff was with me at the hospital and at home for the first week, when the big excitement is passing gas. Brothers find this funny, and mine decided to make a contest out of it and let's just say when I would, he would.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
145992 tn?1341348674 I am so ready for laser hair removal! Of course I am still debating whether or not to shave my legs on the 3 Day. No power there and i am not sure the showers are roomy or whether we are afforded the time necessary to shave.
Avatar n tn Well, excess body hair or hirsutism can occur at any age and is more common in women. In males it is difficult to recognize as men have more body hair than women If you are a male, then it could be a normal finding. Some men are more hairy than others. If you feel they are abnormal, then you can consult a doctor to rule out adrenal gland problems. One of the most common causes is adrenal cortical tumors, which are often malignant.
Avatar n tn Finally, you might look into laser hair removal. A few treatments may thin your hair sufficiently so you'll need to shave less often, and the remaining hairs will be thinner and less likely to curl up under the skin and cause inflammation. Take care. Dr.
694164 tn?1333149588 Margypops, The worst possible thing you can do is to shave-this blunting the edge of hair growth causing the feeling thicker courser hair. Hence why men get stubble! Ok you have 2 options-Laser which effectively burns from the hair follicle(the root) As long as there is growth this can be performed. This is done correctly will work for you although you have to keep with it.
Avatar n tn I get it all time and really have to exfoliate a lot, there are red dots that usually itch and are inflammed. I think laser hair removal is the only option to reduce the hair, but that is expensive and I doubt there are many studies that allow you to get it for free. I still am learning about this and am I trying to find anyone that has a similar condition to mine, but no luck and from all the observing and locker rooms I have been and travels. I have never found anyone with the same thing.
363243 tn?1331037450 Hi coco727272, I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I am not African American, I am of Sicilian decent. I also have had problems with hursutism. I had something called laser hair removal on my face to remove upper lip hair, chin, neck and "sideburn" hair. It is really very effective and permanently removes hair as the laser kills the hair's root. You'll probably always have some hairs because you can grow new ones at any time in your life but it kills the hairs that are there.
Avatar f tn I used to say the hair was the worst and I could deal with the acne, but since I am allergice to all the good acne medication with benzoyl peroxide or sufla, the acne is becoming just as big of a problem. The hair on my chin and lip I started to shave so I could get laser hair removal done (you can't pluck or wax for about 2 months before the procedure so shaving was my option) I now feel like I get a 5 oclock shaddow! Its not as bad as it for men and all, but it is still soooo frustrating.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Proscar to help reduce facial hair and increase scalp hair prior to having any of these symptoms as I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) since I was 29. I am now 60. I am concerned that the Proscar may have caused my symptoms, but my endo says no. I asked them to see which ovary the high testosterone is coming from but they want to take both ovaries. I'm scared because I've never been in menopause and I'm afraid of how the chemical changes will affect me.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have the same problem and it's awful! Anybody who says it has to do with your razor or shaving lotion, etc has no idea what you're going through. It's the hair growing back & having to push up through the skin so your best bet is to shave as infrequently as possible. Strangely, I only experience this on my legs but it is so incredibly bad. I can't even get by with scratching just using my finger nails.
Avatar n tn - Laser hair removal (long pulse yag laser works good) - there was a clinical experiment being done but do not kown what was the outcome clinical trial but laser has helped me ALOT. I have my doctor perscribe this treatment for me, although my insurance does not cover it but I have had Flex Account cover it. - As mentioned by other people change sweaty clothes, keep dry and wear only cotton.
Avatar n tn Regarding the hair loss, when I started going through menopause at age 47 I would find a hair ball in the shower. Lasted for a while and then stopped. I've read that hair loss can be attributed to a lack of estrogen. So not sure if you're at that age or not. Hair loss is also a symptom that some people with lupus deal with. I've had some estrogen issues just recently and have noticed my skin is a lot drier than usual, probably a result of the lowering estrogen.
Avatar f tn they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
Avatar n tn The same hormones are responsible for giving pubic and underarm hair their extra pigment, it's also why they are curly even if your other hair is not. Honestly, I don't think you should resort to bleach or whatever those creams are, the active ingredient causes cancer. It's not worth it, guys don't care/notice anyway. If they are naked with you and are busy staring at some slightly darker skin, they have bigger problems! Find a guy who isn't a waste of time, at least that's free.
Avatar f tn Incidentally, the reason I was looking around was because I suffer with a reasonable crop of hair on my breasts,nipples and chest as a result of my hormone imbalance. I am trying to find out if I went for Laser hair removal - could this leave me more prone to cancer in this area or of the skin in the future?. Have you or has anyone heard anything? as there's not a lot to be found. Hi by the way!
Avatar n tn Very interesting that you bring that up as I am a cutter and am also obsessed with skin picking (any bump on my face, chest or arms must be picked at) and hair tweezing (I spend *hours* tweezing out each individual leg hair). Good luck kicking the oxy habit! From what I remember when a guy I knew went through detox from oxy, swimming helped a little with the tightness in his skin/aches/etc.
Avatar f tn I found a book online called The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis Its a medical book for sale and you can only see a couple pages, but from the index there was a whole chapter on plate removal due to immunologic response. Also.... Allergic reactions to metal implants: Influence of wear debris Properties of implant materials and particles.
Avatar n tn - anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and fluttering - depression - excessive weight gain - hair loss *I already have a prob. with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, so I am currently on medication. (Will be weaned off if not good during the pregnancy - just wanted you to know I am thinking it all through:) *It is one thing to gain maybe 5 lbs. or to gain weight when pregnant. I have been pregnant before and understand weight gain comes with this.
Avatar n tn Except for maybe one thing that I found in almost all body, face and hand creams, and makeup and even hair conditioner that maybe our problem. It is called methylparaben, and it is and additive that is prevalent in most of our external products we all use daily. It has been banned in Europe and Canada but not in our own beloved USA! Shockig to say the least. I went to a web site called www.cosmeticsdatabase.com and typed in my favorite hand cream.
Avatar n tn Natural hormones (bio-identical hormones) can really help some women with weight gain and moods, facial hair etc. Fibromyalgia is a pet of mine...I have it. I find SAMe works wonders, it increases circulating serotonin and helps with the pain - double whammy - depression and pain relief. I also adopt a low oxalate diet and that has also improved my pain. After 4 years I am nearly pain free.

393685 tn?1425816122 My husband is very supportive, but I just feel that he would not want to be with someone struggling with hair loss. I dunno. Hopefully my hair grows back where it has thinned out. Thanks for putting this ? out there.
