Thanks for posting your query.
Hair at upperlip, chin, beard, axillae, pubic areas are all sex hormone dependent. Generally if hair is present in kost other areas means you dont suffer from any hormone problem.
However it is better to undergo hormone profile like
1. Thyroid tests
2. Androgen levels
3. Dheas level
4. Blood sugars


if all these tests are normal minoxidil may be tried locally
Thanks once again.have a nice day

If tests are normal you may have to try onky minoxidil 5 percent lotion. It will take one year for Iimprovemennt.
You may do tests in any lab with your gps advice.
Thanks
I hope there may not be further doubts
