Subject:  Getting rid of body hair naturally
my 3 yr old daughter has a lot of hair on her body. It does not look nice. I am very worried about it. I really feel bad when everybody comments on her. I do not know the reason. I want to try some home remedies. I am a bit hairy, so could this be the reason for my baby having excess hair. I feel very conscious so I make her wear long sleeved dresses and jeans or full pants. Please suggest me some effective home remedies for getting rid of body hair.

If your baby has excess hair growth,then find out the cause. Genetics does play a role. Find out if the cause is hormonal imbalance as then it requires different treatment. Hair removal methods shouldn´ t be used on kids because their skin is too sensitive. You can try home remedies such as applying a paste of turmeric and gram flour. Paste of wheat flour and yellow lentils in raw milk is also a good home remedy. These home remedies are effective but there is no guarantee.

Subject:  Cause of Excess Body Hair in Newborns
Some babies have excess body hair but this is generally normal. Body hair in newborns is known as Lanugo and it is shed off after few weeks. This body hair is a protective covering for the baby while it is in the womb. Sometimes there may be other causes of excessive body hair. A condition known as Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia causes excess body hair in babies and this is due to lack of a particular enzyme.
