Unwanted hair growth in girls is known as Hirsutism and is caused by an increased presence of androgen (male hormones). If the growth of dark or coarse hair in unwanted areas such as the upper lip, chin, chest, abdomen, etc. in a girl is more compared to the family members, getting a doctor’s opinion might be a good idea.
