Keep Meds for Male-Pattern Hair Growth in Women Straight
Women will need help managing hirsutism...excess male-pattern hair growth commonly found on the face, chest, back, abdomen, etc.
About 10% of women have hirsutism...typically due to high levels of "androgen" hormones, such as testosterone. And most cases are in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
But some meds may also cause excessive hair growth...such as cyclosporine or valproic acid.
