unwanted hair
I am 17 and have a problem with dark hair growing around my nipples and on my chin and jaw. It's embarrassing. How do I get rid of it??

Plucking or electrolysis are options. If you have other family members with this problem, it is probably heriditary and benign. If not, perhaps you should have some hormone tests.
