MONDAY, JULY 18, 1900 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH You're the Doctor By Jotepti 0. WMteraftf, r AC1AL A rewter tn Bar Harbor, Malfte, Write*: "My daughter i« 17 year* old and very pt«t- ty. She has a (air, smooth skin. The only mar to her appearance i« a slight excess of hair on her upper lip and a few on her chin. I tell her It It nothing but *he in very mu6h upset about It. Is there anything she can do to fe- llevc this condition?" There's no quesiton that this young lady may be upset about her excess facial hair and try* ing to appease her with kind words may be no appeasement at all. Better to tackle the problem squarely and do rverything that can be done to help her. In most young girls, excess facial hair of this type Is usually racial or familial. The problem Is, or seems to be, more common in those races whose hair fe dark. Furthermore, facial hairiness tends to run in some families. In these rases, it can hardly be considered a disease although It may be emotionally disturbing. In other instances, excess hair may be a reflection of disordered hormonal function and sometimes It takes a great deal of skill to make an accurate diagnosis. The adrenal glands, lyinsj .just above the kidneys, secrete many hormones including some that are masculinizing. In women the ovarian hormones, however, are normally polent onouKh to "neutralize" any possible masculirrizntion. Disorders of the pituitary gland may be even more difficult to define because the pituitary Klnnd is no larger than a pea and tics deep in the brain. It controls the function of many of the other glands in the body. Skull X-rays, brain wave tests and even air injection into the spine or brain may be necessary before an accurate diagnosis can be made. Most women, we repeat, have excess facial hairiness without any apparent disease of any of the organs of the body. We don't know exactly why some women should have more facial hair than others hut the best reason at the moment for most of them is because they were "just born that way." Methods of Removal What these women need Is not a lot of fancy medical the- ory but a method trtat It best suited for them for removing the unwanted hair. The method* that are currently available can be classified as fli mechanical and (2) chemic«l. Mechanical methods are tweezlng, clipping or shaving, the use of gentle abrasives, such as pumice, or the appli- Upper Alton News Events HIT WIWI BOfTtf! tttTfttfffl FWWI VSHtCUC Robert Stratton, 7. of 1111 Sellet St.. suffered a nit of the head when he was struck by a bwr bottle hurled from a vehicle en- route to the American Legion parade, Sunday afternoon, police said.

For the temporary removal of a hair or hairs, either tweez- lng, clipping or shaving is adequate. Proper hygenic measures should be used, such as washing the area with an antiseptic soap before and after hair removal. Electric razors often make the problem simpler and safer. It It important to know that repeated shaving does not make hair grow excessively. If a pumice stone is used to remove hair by friction, it IB advisable to apply some sooth- Ing ointment to the skin to prevent additional Irritation. The application of chemicals to unwanted hair is with two thoughts in mind; either actually to remove the hair or to bleach it so that it will be less noticeable. Bleaching solutions are usually combinations of ammonia and peroxide. A typical formula contains S per cent or up to 30 per cent of hydroperoxide and 4 per cent of diluted ammonia in bottle came out of a vehicle that i i was one of the unlls in the parade.

Here, too, it is necessary to be cautious so as to avoid irritating of the skin. Other Methods Other suitable methods of removing unwanted hair are electrolysis and electrocoagu- lation. Electrocoagulation is not an easy, do-it-yourself, home project but requires the assistance of a skilled operator. A fine wire is inserted along the hair to the hair follicle and then a current is set off which burns the hair at the base. Done properly, this is the only sure, safe method of getting rid of unwanted hair permanently. Using X-rays to get rid of hair is altogether too hazardous and is mentioned here only to be condemned. :© I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc.
