Brief Answer:
Consult an Endocrinologist

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I advise you to start with an Endocrinology consultation. This type of doctor specializes in hormones and related disorders. The doctor will examine you thoroughly and likely order a bunch of tests to determine the cause of your abnormal hair growth.

Treatment will depend on the cause.
