Thanks for your query. This condition by itself is of no harm but can be of a major cosmetic concerns and especially in females. There are multiple options to treat if cosmesis is a concern and each has to be customized based on few laboratory tests and certain other parameters/ Also the outcome is unpredictable. An attempt to find associated comorbidities should be made and it will provide new treatment lines.
