Make a doctor's appointment and get your hormone levels checked.

Yes, seeing your doctor is the best answer.  I have heard of a syndrome (don't recall the name right now) that causes excessive body hair.  Ask your doc about it.

So sorry this is such a burden for you. I know a very lovely woman who lives and works near us, with long dark hair down to her waist, but also completely covering her arms, thick, black, several inches long. She is engaged to the son of friends of ours. I find her very attractive. Perhaps you will find someone who feels this way about you. Hope so. Blessings, Chris
