Hairy and sweaty
I am a 21 year old female who is absolutely hairy. I have thick unsightly hair all over my body. What can I do to sort this problem. I am also suffering with sweaty body. I sweat under my arm and my palms as well as my feet and back. No amount of roll on and powder works.

Please help urgently.

Pg, before you do anything you have to find out what the cause is. It might be due to an endocrine problem – female hormones, thyroid, adrenal glands, etc. The best would be to see an endocrinologist or if there isn’t one in your area, a specialist physician or gynaecologist. Good luck.
