I have hair on the nipples of my breasts. Is that normal?

It's possible — and normal — to have hair almost anywhere on the body, so a few hairs on your nipples are nothing to worry about. If you have questions about whether your body hair is normal, you can ask your doctor, too. And be sure to tell your doctor if you sprout dark hair in the middle of your chest or other places, such as your face. Here are two places you won't grow hair — the palms of your hands and soles of your feet!
