Its been 2 weeks since i've shaved my legs and barely any hair has grown. Its never grown this slowly before. What could be the cause?
I do not know: Slow hair growth after shaving your legs is not a major issue and you may even be thankful you do not need to shave more regularly now. Hair growth can be triggered by certain nutrients too, so maybe your diet has changed etc. All in all though, i would not be overly concerned about this issue. Best wishes. ...Read more

How can i reduce my legs' hair? i've got a lot of hair on my legs and i want to reduce it not to shave it all. I'd like you to give me a solution plz.

Otherwise, you could try cream depilatories or waxing- either in a salon or at home, but these still require repeated uses and upkeep like shaving. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My legs are super sensitive, and as soon as I shave within minutes I can feel the hair grow back, what can I do.? I've never been able to wear shorts
Skin rash?: I can't say what you're feeling, but for sure it isn't hair growing back that quickly. Why can't you wear shorts? If the skin on your legs has a rash or looks abnormal, discuss it with your doctor, or perhaps see a dermatologist. This should be easy to diagnose and perhaps fix. Good luck! ...Read more
