This Is Why Hair Grows on Your Nipples (And Other Places You Hate)

November 18, 2015 2 min read

You think you're hairless in all the right places until one day, you look down post shower while moisturizing and you see it: a dark nipple hair. WHAT? ARE YOU A FREAK OF NATURE? A MAN? WHAT IS HAPPENING? Calm down. It's normal.
[bctt tweet="From pesky strays near your nipples or on your chin, you're not alone. "] “Our body has hair follicles and oil glands all over, including around the nipples, so there is always the potential for hair growth,” explains Lance Brown, M.D., a New York dermatologist. We have about 50 million hair follicles on our bodies, and no, they're not all on our heads. In fact, only one-fifth of them are, leaving plenty of other areas for them to arise. nipple hair The most common places they'll pop up, along with your nipples, are your ear lobes, chin and belly button. As for your nipples, you'll probably find a strand or several right outside of the areola. You may find one coarse hair on your ear lobe right near where your earrings rest. A few random strands can pop up around the belly button or below, too. As for your chin, it's actually the most common of all of them. But why? Why can't you just be hairless where you want to be? Well, if you're finding just a few strays, you're likely experiencing hormonal fluctuations as a result of pregnancy or menopause. Some medications can result in this as well, like testosterone, danazol, anabolic steroids, glucocorticoids, cyclosporine, minoxidil, and phenytoin. On the other hand, if there's a lot of hairs popping up, you might have hirsutism, which is a condition that can be genetic and results in excessive, coarse body hair in women. It could also be more serious than that, however, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), though it only effects 5 to 10 percent of women in the world.  Not sure what to do when you get them. Tweezers aren't just meant for your brows, so pluck out the pesky guys! And if you have larger patches, shaving or waxing might be your best bet. For a more long-term solution, laser hair removal is a great option. nipple hair How do you deal with stray hairs in unwanted places? Source: Women's Health
