I have lost nearly all my hair on my legs from the top of my shins to my ankles. Somebody told me it was from wearing socks all the time. How can that be? I see all these products that make hair grow back on the scalp but is there anything to make hair grow back on legs?
It's quite possible it is your socks or trousers rubbing your legs.I have an underactive thyroid,and not only is my hair thinning on my head, but also my hair has gradually got thinner on my upper legs.But the lower leg's calfs and shins have just about lost all hair.I'm not saying you have an underactive thyroid; It's just that I noticed your post,and I have not seen many people outside of the thyroid board mention this.
I'm 34 & have the same problem! I actually tried evening primrose & this seemed to help a little.I even tried asking a hair transplant doctor & he said it could be doen,but there would be little holes all over your legs(he said my legs would like a golf ball)I have tried Minoxodyl(Rogaine)& all this did was dry my skin out(The Doctor said there is no proof Minox will grow back leg hair)I'm thinking about just waxing it(although my girl friend LOVES hairy legs on men)Try this site.Go to the message board (Open Topic) & ask more detailed questions if you like.There might be someone there who can help. http://www.hairlosshelp.com
Don't know if anyone is still reading this post or not, but my father lost the hair on his legs quite a long time ago. He has recently been diagnosed with Diabetes. He also had extremely cold feet/pore circulation. I have cold feet most of the time, but not signs of diabetes yet. The combination of the hair loss and the cold feet, however, is a strong sign of poor circulation to the lower appendages. It might be worth getting a blood sugar level test, just to be sure.
