What is Hypertrichosis?

Description of the disease

Hypertrichosis is a condition in which a person has an excessive amount of hair on the body in places where it normally does not grow. This can be a congenital or acquired condition.


  • Congenital hypertrichosis
  • Acquired hypertrichosis


Symptoms of hypertrichosis include excessive hair growth on the face, back, chest, and other parts of the body.


The causes of hypertrichosis can be genetic, endocrine disorders, certain medications, and other factors.


Diagnosis of hypertrichosis is based on a doctor's examination and analysis of the patient's medical history.


Treatment of hypertrichosis may include hair removal using laser, electrolysis, or depilation. In some cases, hormonal correction may be necessary.


Prevention of hypertrichosis involves avoiding its causes if possible and proper treatment of any diseases that can cause excessive hair growth.


A doctor specializing in dermatology or endocrinology can help diagnose and treat hypertrichosis.
