  • I get them occasionally on my neck, not my chin though. Mine's just hereditary, my grandma and my mom and all of my mom's sisters have got stray hair on their neck/chin. I just pluck mine out every 2 days. I only have 3 lol, but from what I understand it is often caused by hormones or by a thyroid problem. You may want to ask your dr.

  • I pluck them, never shave them. MIne is genetic..I am Italian and we have a lot of hair in strange places.

  • I have one dark black one that grows just under my chin. My mom has the same one, so it's genetic for me.

    If you have lots and it's new, it cold be hormonal or an imbalance somewhere. If that's the case, talk to your doc.
