Coarse facial hair and acne
Usually, I am a hairy person since childhood and I had accepted myself that way. But for past 5 years I have more coarse, thick and long hair growing below chin and neck area. I tried many home DIYs initially. Tried waxing, threading, plucking which leads to pimples or scars. Since I am light skinned, hair are more visible. I had 9 laser hair removal sessions in pre covid era but it dint help at all. Also, sometimes in a month I do get 1 or 2 red bump cyst like acnes mostly on chicks, nose or chin which leaves marks. Could it be hormonal? I dont have any menstrual problems. No weight gain or any other noticible symptoms. What tests should I do and what doctor should I consult?
