Hi,
Excessive hair is a feature of PCOS and can be treated. Cosmetic procedures like waxing, shaving, electrolysis and laser therapy are the various options available. Also certain drugs can also help with the excessive hair associated with PCOS. Spironolactone, Flutamide, Cyproterone acetate has been effective in the treatment of hirsutism.  Consult a gynaecologist and an endocrinologist for an evaluation.
