I am 19 year old healthy male and am suffering from a hair loss problem on my lower shins. I thought it would have been a laugh to get my legs waxed knowing that the hair would grow back, however it hasn’t on that part of my leg.
At first I thought the hampered growth was due to the fact that I wore long-socks and the friction caused the roots to rip out. However I have been told that even with hair loss from friction, they would still grow back.
Instead it has been nearly 3 years now and the hair hasn’t grown back. I am really self-conscious of the problem as it makes me feel emasculated and I do not wear shorts, nor expose the legs anymore. I do not think it is a blood circulatory problem as I have hair beneath the bald spots.
I don’t have diabetes, nor have I suffered damage to that part of the leg (burns, scars, lacerations etc…)
I am simply baffled by this problem and will do absolutely anything to stimulate the hair growth in that part of both my shins and can’t wait to jump back in the swimming pool.
Shaving or waxing your legs should not cause permanent hair loss. Some men and women have permanent hair loss where their socks are constantly rubbing on their legs, but I can’t explain why your hairy legs were waxed one time and failed to ever regrow hair again.
