After the cast came off...

the hair on the back of my arm & hand came in dark & thicker! It used to be fine, thin & blond! And where there wasn't any hair at all on the inside of my wrist, now there is!


I've been very self conscious about it. :(

Do you think any of those hair-reducing lotions would work?

    i'd use those and put hydrogen peroxide on it every day. the 3% used for washing cuts, swiped on twice a day, will lighten it significantly!

    Now why didn't I think of HP?! I was told to use that some years ago for what the doctor thought was one small spot of ringworm below one eyebrow, which wasn't. :roll: It significantly lightened those hairs!

    Thanks for the reminder!

    How long has your cast been off? I could have sworn the extra hair fell out after a few days.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    That's what I was hoping for & why I waited so long to post; it's been since Mar 12th! :shock:

    Try the peroxide. If it doesn't lighten fast enough for you, you can use facial hair bleaching cream. That happened to me too. The next hairs will come out normal. Weird huh?!
