Injury or disease: such as spinal cord and peripheral nerve injury, central nerve disorder, some skin diseases such as malignant tumor, follicular mother spot and long-term repeated inflammatory stimulation.

Endocrine factors: there are great changes in various organs in adolescence, the gonads are becoming more and more mature, and the male hormone secretion levels of testis, ovary and adrenal gland can exceed the normal value. This abnormal idiopathic phenomenon often leads to excessive concentration and weight of body hair and lip hair.

Genetic factors: hairy genes exist on autosomes and can be passed on to the next generation with recessive inheritance.
