Every so often I get a hair growing out of my face that is like a tree stump. Upon closer inspection it is many hairs joined together out of the same follicle. Sometimes 10 or more hairs. Anyone else have this?

+1, pics are not necessary.

ETA: to answer the OP's question, yes.

ETA #2: WTF? I didn't read it all the way, No, never on my face, and only ever two out of one follicle.

I get this occasionally on my chest, but it's more like 2-3 hairs from one follicle.

No, and I suggest you try a Guillotine. that should solve your problem.

Yes. I pull it out with the tweezers, and my wife and I examine it.

Wives enjoy it much more when you stick it on the mirror by the root, sticking straight out.

Wrong.   Multiple hairs per follicle is not THAT.   THAT is abnormally long hair growth given the area involved.



I have some multiple hair follicles on my chest.  Not a lot, but a few here and there.   I have plenty of chest hair

but only a few follicles grow double hairs.

It happens to me all the time, seems to come in waves actually.  I'll go weeks w/o any and then all of a sudden I'll find several in my beard.  I pull the bitches out with tweezers and inspect.  It's wild to see SOOO many hairs growing out of one folicial.

ETA:  Pili multigemini is a rare malformation characterized by the presence of bifurcated or multiple divided hair matrices and papillae, giving rise to the formation of multiple hair shafts within the individual follicles

It can't be that rare by the sounds of how many on here have it.  And if it is rare, why do I get it instead of winning the lottery or something enjoyable.  Lucky me.

I used to get them.  Pulled them out with tweezers or pliers, depending on how stubborn they were, and they eventually stopped coming back.  Normally 3-4 hairs, but a couple of times there were 6 or more.

I haven't had any in about 10 years, now.  I'm 44.


Pliers!?  I am glad I don't have them that bad!
