black body hair on breasts
I am struggling with a very embarrassing problem. I have these horrible black hairs growing on my breasts (around nipple and on rest of breast ares) and on my neck area.

Everyday they seem to be getting more and more. What must I do? I am so ashamed. I walk around in high neck tops because the hairs are getting worse.

Can anybody help me? I feel so alone in this and I don't want to go to the doctor if I can help it.

Laydee, it all depends on how bad it is. If you have hair like a male, the best would be to see your doctor so that he can do some blood tests. If there are just a couple of hairs, you can safely pluck them out with a pair of tweezers. Good luck.
