Excessive growth of facial or body hair on women is called hirsutism. It may be symptom of an underlying disorder. Drugs with characteristics of
androgens may cause hirsutism. Anabolic steroids used to increase muscle mass in chronically ill and debilitated people and by some bodybuilders, are chemically related to androgens. Natural supplements such as DHEA may cause hirsutism. Danazol, phenytoin, minoxidil, and diazoxide are other medications associated with increased hair growth.
