ok I know it's not the same hair but the hair on my legs has pretty much stopped growing, which I have noticed lately and today I noticed I have a fu manchu moustache growing on my face........took out the nair and now it is gone but weird, weird, weird!   It was dark hair too, not like the peach fuzz everyone has.
 
Maybe, I'll join the circus.....

Are you on pred? Pred gave me a stache and this fuzz on my face. I was soooo cute...ha ha! My derm. gave me some cream for hair removal. When I go downstairs I will look at the bottle. Pretty much went away after I got off pred.

I found the website...http://www.vaniqa.com/. Sometimes I want to scream..."isn't enough I have a disease that makes me poop all the time and now you want to add moonface, facial hair, joint pain, etc, etc."

Pred and entocort both did that to me, too. They moved the hair from my head and legs to my face and arms. I lovingly called myself "Monkey Girl" for a while there. Not to worry, it'll switch back when you get off the steroids.
