Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear Sugandha
I agree with your concern about this problem in your young daughter.
This condition is callled Hirsutism( excessive hair growth) and has multiple causes. It is generally due to some excessive hormones called Androgens. Some of the babies have some associated abnormalities of genitalia also. I shall advise you to consult a Pediatrician in your town. He can get the child investigated and institute the required treatment.
