Hirsutism in PCOS is thought to be mostly due to excessive levels of androgenic hormones. Temporary hair removal can be achieved through depilation or epilation. Drugs like androgen receptor blockers, androgen suppressing agents and 5 alpha reductase inhibitors are also used. Permanent means of hair removal by electrolysis and laser treatment are also useful. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss all the pros and cons of these methods so that the best treatment for you can be decided.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I was wondering what the mechanism is regarding cataracts after steroid injections in the eyelid is administered in the treatment of alopecia of the eyelashes..
My alopecia of the eyelash is on my left lash in one uppper eyelid only. It also happened in 2001 and grew back and now happened again (Im guessing due to med school) so would you say that there is a chance it will grow back again without treatment?
Thanks again doctor Kaur,
What do you think about the idea that if you increase cell turnover (with retin A, tretinoin) and exfoliate with special face washes, can that help prevent ingrown hairs. I don't have acne on areas on my face with no hair growth. The places I get acne is due to ingrown hairs mostly.
