DEAR DOCTOR,

MY WIFE HAS SOME BLACK HAIR LIKE MUSHTANG ON HER FACE. SO FAR NO MEDICINE HAS BEEN USED FOR THIS. IS THERE ANY WAY IT CAN BE REMOVED NATURALLY OR ANY CREAM AVAILABLE WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECT ?

KINDLY ADVISE

User avatar Dear Abdul-Nazer,

Hair growth on the face of a female in the mustache and beard areas is a normal matter in some females.

If this is something new that your wife is starting to suffer from and it is associated with hair growth in other areas of the body such as the chest and abdomen and may be associated with change in her voice, it is necessary that your wife sees her doctor about this.

If this is just the regular hair that has always grown in this area, then there are lots of products that could be used that are commercially available and there are other ways also to get rid of this hair without using any chemical products on the skin that females are usually very familiar with.

Thank you very much for using our website https://www.doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
