facial hair
An_246770 posted:
Hello. I am a 59 year old female and since I've gone through menopause I noticed facial hair, quite a bit, on my chin and upper lip area. Not only that I seem to have a hard white hair like substance, it's not hair, but it's white, it grows like hair. Anyway I have been tweezing and tweezing to the point where I have messed up my chin area pretty bad. I cannot afford to go to a dermatologist but have been putting cortosone 10 creme on it. It helps some, but the problem is that I seem to be obsessed with tweezing. I wish I could stop. Is there anyone else out there with similiar problems such as mine? Please let me know what the avaiable over the counter treatment I can buy. Thank you so much.
