Hi - firstly, welcome to the site!!
Andrea's created a real gold mine here - the members are great, and I'm sure you'll find lots of help and support here!
I would suspect that your daughter's hairs are a genetic thing, as she is only 6.
However, I'd certainly recommend taking her to your doctor to get her hormone levels checked. She shouldn't be producing much, as she's yet to reach puberty (I assume!?). But maybe she and you have over active adrenal glands (adrenal glands produce a form of testosterone, and testosterone causes body hair to grow thicker and darker).
If her levels are normal (and I suspect they will be), then maybe you could consider laser to get her hairs zapped as they grow. Hopefully if you get them while they're young and not yet established, you'll get better results.
(You'll get good results with laser if she has a fair skin and dark hair - otherwise, you might have to resort to electrolysis which is *very* slow.)
And in between, you could take her to a beauty therapist's to get them bleached or waxed.
Good luck!! I really really feel for you - please let us know how things go... [ October 09, 2002, 02:24 AM: Message edited by: Toni ]
