Your optinos: Trusting you're a male naturally "blessed" with a lot of body hair. Most other men are at least a little bit jealous, and many hairy guys love it, but it's your choice (and your partner's, if you've got somebody). There's a whole culture of "manscaping" with trimming and even styling of body hair. Shaving, waxing, and (if you're sure) electrolysis / lasers are all options for you. Read more
Folliculitis: It may cause folliculitis-inflammation of hair follicles. Read more
Not sure of your Q: We know that giving someone excess testosterone can increase body & facial hair. If we give just enough testosterone to someone w/hypogonadism (low t), it shouldn't affect hair growth much, unless that testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which can cause male pattern baldness. Don't forget that genetics & ethnicity play a role in hair growth, too. Read more

What do you ask?: Please forgive my frankness. The world is not fair, and cosmetic defects are both personal and professional liabilities. In many (most?) cultures, a masculine pattern of body hair on a woman is a strong negative. It's cruel to tell a person to "be confident" rather than deal with the situation. See about electrolysis or laser Rx. These should be cheap and easily available. Read more
What do you want?: If you're a female, it's wise to have masculine-type body hair removed by electrolysis or lasers unless it's something you very much like. A man naturally "blessed" with body hair gets to choose. Many men (and many women who admire us) love it, while other folks prefer smooth. Shaving, waxing, and (if you're sure) electrolysis / lasers are all options. Best wishes. Read more
Not hormones: A man with a normal amount of testosterone will be hairy or smooth depending on his genetic background. It's the skin's ability to respond. Taking extra testosterone won't turn a smooth man hairy -- if it did, the steroid monsters at the gym would all grow extra body hair, and by and large they do not. Smooth or hairy, I hope you like who you are -- or shave / "manscape" what you don't want. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
