Anyone Dealing With Facial Hair?

Anyone Dealing With Facial Hair?

Anyone dealing with the “wonderful” facial and chest hair?
I was given spironolactone but that gives me the tastes of pennies all day. I did the cream but it burns when I have to shave it. I used to wax my face which seemed to help, but now I work out in the public, I can’t walk around with a full beard until my next waxing day.

Spironolactone works somewhat decently when I use it regularly. It tastes disgusting. I use a compounded liquid version. I drink a little bit of Coca Cola after I take it. It has thinned out the hair some. I still shave daily, sometimes a couple times. Maybe a Compounding pharmacy can help you. They don't have to put it into liquid, it can be a safe gel, cream, patch etc. Likly one that won't burn you.

I use Spironolactone daily. I use tweezers like every day honestly. I have done threading before and I like it, but I am in the same boat as you I can't let it all grow out for a wax.
Please don't shave! It's so quick and convenient but the hair grows back more, and more thick I find

I was given the cream and tablets by the docs and nothing worked for me! I’m going to the beautician weekly for waxing🙁.

Doctor sent me to dermatologist and I’ve been referred to get laser treatment.

If the tablets don’t work, and laser is a treatment your okay with then hopefully it’s something they can do for you too!
