Question: Every once in a while I would find long dark hairs on my breast ( not nipple). I have had my hormone levels checked and they are fine. I feel this is not normal and may be an underlaying cause. I am a 36 year old healthy female.
What is your opinion on this? Thanks!

Brief Answer:
Use Eflora

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.

There is nothing to worry as your hormonal levels are normal.
Few people have such long breast hairs.
I treat such cases with Eflornithine 13.9% cream to be applied twice daily for 6 months.
It is effective and safe.

It acts slowly but is effective and gives permanent solution.
It is available with the trade name of Eflora or Elyn.
You can try this.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

I just wanted to add that I have breast implants and was just curious if that made a difference? Before I got breast implants (5 years ago) I never noticed these hairs.
Thanks again!
