Hirsutism or the condition of having a hirsute face or body, is a condition in women that results in excessive growth of dark or coarse hair in a male-like pattern — face, chest and back.

With hirsutism, extra hair growth often arises from excess male hormones (androgens), primarily testosterone.

Self-care methods and effective treatment options are available for women who wish to treat hirsutism.
