Facial hair after chemo

I am seeing lot of facial hair growth.. 3 months after chemo. Hair on the head is growing but facial hair around cheeks and ear is also seen.. Did anyone experience that?

Not heard of such a situation. Just consult your doctor

I also have the same problem but after Endocrine therapy with Letrozole. My chemo therapy was over on 30th Jan, 2018 and endocrine therapy started on 21st Feb, 2018.

I had similar problem.. but once your hair on head grows to a good length the facial hair will not b very prominent..so do not go for facial waxing or any type of hair removal.. just wait until hair grows completely on your head

OK thank you. I read somewhere that it goes away on its own after a few months.
