Hair loss in scalp but excess hair in body

Edited , 2 users are following.

hi guys

I have hair loss on my scalp - even if I'm just sitting at my desk my chair is covered in hairs! Its not just when brushing or washing my hair

what's weird is that I have excess hair growing in places that I don't want them- I'm a female and I have hairs under my chin, around my nipples, on my stomach and below belly button, in my lower back etc so all the places a man would usually have hair.

I have had lots of test - hormones vitamins etc only thing I had was low vitamin D 6 months ago which they gave me high strength vitamin d to top up - my levels are all normal now- my testosterone was also normal and they said I don't have pcos...

upon googling it seems like hirsutism which doesn't seem to have a cure

has anyone had these symptoms or can point me in the right direction?
