Ever since I was really young, I’ve had these random hairs that grow on various parts of my arms and shoulders. They’ll just pop up from time to time.
These aren’t normal hairs - these are different than the other hair that grows on my arms. These hairs are much longer (up to an inch at times), very thick, very dark, and appear to grow really fast. Really, they look a lot like my chest hairs except that they grow on my arms from time to time. And they’re solitary, too. There are no moles or freckles or any other similar hairs - these are just random single hairs that seem to pop up on my arms that are different from the other hair on my arm.
Does anyone have any explanation for this? Is there a scientific term for these things? I always pluck them out when I find them, but I wonder if I left them would I eventually have really coarse and hairy arms.
FYI - I’m of European descent with a medium skin tone.
Geez, reading this, it sounds pretty weird, but I’m genuinely curious as to the origin/cause of these things. So any info would be appreicated.
