Thanks for the query.

Excessive hair growth on the parts of the body where it does not normally grow is called hirsutism.
This can be seen by genetical influence, hormonal fluctuation etc.
So you better consult doctor once to find out the actual cause of your problem.
There is nothing wrong in it as many teenage girls can have this problem.
Take the help of your mother in dealing with this.
There are many treatment options for it depending on the severity and cause, so no need to worry.
Take care.
