Hi, my daughter 13 years old is already getting hair on her legs and arms, but all female members of our family have excessive hair growth. Still isn’t it too early? She is also tall, is there any connection between body size and hair growth?

Hi, it is not so rare these days to see teenagers looking much older. You should know that both growth of the body an hair is determined by hormone activity. If females in a family have excess body hair, it is probably case of familial hirsutism, common in some cultures. This condition requires no medical treatment, as it is not a disease. Other possibility is hormonal imbalance, which can be determined by lab examinations. In this case, some treatment may be provided, but it is essential to find out whether your daughter has only esthetic problem or increased hormone level could have greater impact on her health.
