I have been taking 1/5 proscar for the past 6 months and I noticed I have a patch on both my lower legs where there is less hair. It’s in the same spot on both legs and it is roughly 2 by 4 inches big. It’s clearly visible and I haven’t noticed any changes in body hair on my chest, arms or any other body part. I’m not complaining but I would like to know if it’s normal.
I do not know how this could be related to the use of finasteride. If there are stubs of hair (like a closely shaven leg), it could be from traction. Perhaps you are wearing boots or pants that are rubbing in the area? Maybe the spots was there before and you never noticed it? Maybe it is something else entirely. It sounds odd, particularly if it is on both sides. I just do not know.
