Indirectly, maybe : When prepubertal children are placed on hgh for gh deficiency, their bodies go towards getting back on track with respect to growth. As they catch up and go through puberty underarm hair eventually grows in. Gh will not directly cause sexual maturation.

No.: Lack of or very limited amounts of underarm and pubic hair growth often is part of delayed puberty development, or secondary sex characteristics. Treatment of this involves various types of another hormonal group, known as androgens; these will increase underarm (axillary) growth.
