Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Its important to know what kind of medication she has been prescribed for her hair for example minoxidil which is s common medicine for hair loss,if given at higher concentration can cause excess facial hair in females.This at times is temporary and should fall down when it is stopped.But its better to use a lower concentration of the same in females.So kindly check that out and talk to your dermatologist.
take care,
