Patient: My daughter has moderate acne and facial hair around her chin and neck area. Could this be a hormone balance issue? Could medication help?
Doctor: Yes, it is possible that your daughter has a mild hormonal imbalance. Sometimes hormonal imbalances are related to stres s and lifestyle preferences. However, some women normally have sparse facial hair on the chin area. To be sure, have her checked by a doctor as a complete physical exam coupled with blood tests and other procedures can determine if she really has a hormone imbalance. Once a diagnosis is made, appropriate interventions can be started. I do hope this helps. Take care always.
