Hi Dr. Rassman,
I love reading your blog and after educating myself and talking to my doctor, I am now taking Propecia.
I have an “odd” question for you. I don’t have any hair on the outside of my legs below my knees. It is almost completely bald. Have you heard of this before, or could you offer any advice?
I assume you’re not shaving them in your sleep…
But yes, I have heard of this before (many times). We do not know the causes, but sometimes it comes from rubbing of the outside of the leg on the other leg (crossing them). There is probably a genetic cause of the problem if you can not associate any chronic rubbing that could cause traction to the leg hairs.
