I am a 23 year old female with pale skin and dark hair. Where other females have light fine hair I have darker hair, some of this is fine but yet still dark, this is all over my body i.e upper lip, sideburns, neck, stomach, upper and lower back. I do not believe that this is the disesase to do with cysts on ovaries as when I was younger I did have a moustache. I feel that it may be that my skin is sensitive to testerone as the hair growth is the same as other females only darker, and coarser.
I obviously find this very embarassing and think that this may also be causing me a mild depression. I would just like some advice on what to do, and who I should see, a GP, dermatologist? etc
I really feel quite alone and feel I cannot talk to anyone about this problem.

Any advice is greatly appreciated : )
