It is true, the growth of hair and fine hairs in the body, including in the hands and feet area is much influenced by hormones. In men, this condition is usually a natural thing to happen starting from the time of puberty. However, in women, if this hair grows excessively, this condition may indicate the presence of excess androgen hormones. This condition can be normal, but it can also occur due to an illness, for example:
PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) Cushing's syndrome Congenital adrenal hyperplasia Tumors that secrete androgen hormones (such as ovarian tumors or adrenal gland tumors) It can also, this excessive hair growth occurs due to side effects of drugs, for example corticosteroids, danazol, or fluoxetine. This steroid is also contained in a number of beauty products, thus causing parts of the body that come into contact with these beauty products to experience excessive hair growth. The growth of hair and fine hair can be more visible in people of the Mediterranean race, Central Asia, or also South Asia.
In connection with your question, will the growth of hair and fuzz diminish after puberty? The answer is yes or no. This of course depends on what causes the growth of excess hair and down.
If your complaint feels very disturbing, you can consult it directly with your doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is provided. Some types of drugs, or certain medical procedures (for example by electrolysis or laser therapy) can be done by doctors to minimize the growth of hair and fine hairs that interfere. Meanwhile, at home, you should not use drugs or hair and hair removal cream. Also make sure you do not carelessly use beauty products with compositions that are potentially dangerous, before first consulting the product to the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
