  • It could be that she has to much testosterone.  The only way to find out is to take her to a doctor to get checked for it. My sister had to much of the male hormone and she had hair on the lower part of her back and stomach.

  • is the hair from under dd arm or actually attached to dd breast and growing out the side of her breast? I had a worry of my daughter's development and I went to a breast speciality group. If its' about her breast and hair from it then see a woman breast surgeon. If its about her underarm and one side growing more hair than the other than see her ped. From there you can decide to see a pediatric dermatologist or even before.

  • Its probably just her hormones in overdrive..bring it up at her next doc app. and nair it off for her if its bothering her so much.

  • I would take her to the doctor, especially seeing it is bothering her. I wouldn't use anything to remove the hair until I talked to the doctor.

  • I agree. Just a quick trip to the dr will probably take care of that. It's probably just something hormonal

  • Check with the doctor and then if it is nothing to worry about, you can help her remove the hair!

  • Check with a doctor about it. Her hormones sound a little out of whack. Now is a good time to help her with that. Maybe it'll help the puberty transition a little easier for her too.
    Good Luck
