Skin Care :: Hypertrichosis or Human Werewolf Syndrome
Hypertrichosis, or Human Werewolf Syndrome, is a medical term referring to a condition of excessive body hair.
It can be generalized, symmetrically affecting most of the torso and limbs, or localized, affecting an area of skin.
In most cases, the term is used to refer to an above-average amount of normal body hair that is unwanted.
In medical practice, once generalized hypertrichosis has been distinguished from hirsutism, it is most often considered a variation of normal, primarily resulting from genetic factors.
