Not much.: Both are controlled by the amount of testosterone and 5-alpha-reductase, but the amount of 5-alpha in the leg skin and in the genital area are regulated by different genes.

No: Not at all. This is a non issue and has nothing to do with anything really.

there have been no studies to address this issue; and frankly no reports in the literature of this being an "issue"...sometimes hair is just that...hair
