Is it possible to stop your hair from growing on certain parts of your body like underarm?

Is it possible to stop your hair from growing on certain parts of your body like underarm?

Managing unwanted: Hair growth is a universal human challenge for both men and women. Most common method, of course, is shaving. While there is nothing (medicines, etc) to keep hair from actually growing, semi-permanent solutions are available: electrolysis, laser hair removal and less permanent waxing and depilatories. Most feel underarm is too large an area for these and feel shaving is acceptable. Hope this helps:) ...Read more

When will my son begin to grow facial and armpit hair?

When will my son begin to grow facial and armpit hair?

Puberty: Boys develop facial, axillary and genital hair when they go through puberty. The timing depends on many factors we don't understand including genetics so typically boys will do what their fathers did. However there seems to be a trend toward earlier puberty these days. We do not know why but I suspect some hormonal influences from the foods we eat or our environment. ...Read more

I'm 23 y.o I have very minimal armpit hair. I want to grow armpit hair. What can be done or are there any medicines that might help. Thanks.

We're all different: Some people don't have much body hair at all. It's the way God made us -everyone's unique. Many people dislike having armpit hair -as it can lead to odor etc. In ur case, I think a hormonal work-up might be in order if there are other findings of hormonal imbalance. A good family history can help - i.e. do others in the family have little armpit hair? I think any treatments would depend on cause ...Read more

I'm an 18 year old girl who waxes her underarms often. At first, my hair kept getting thinner and thinner and I was very satisfied. I wouldn't do it more than once a month. Since last month, my right underarm has been growing a lot of hair. Is this normal

Hair growth: Hair growth (thickness and speed) and hair density are completely independent of waxing. There is nothing you can do to speed it up or slow it down - other than to mess with your hormones in a major way. (Spironolactone and minoxidil included...) Your extra hair growth is not really "extra" it is just returning to what it was before. Take a picture and compare. ...Read more

Don't do anything: Leave it alone- if it was meant to be for you to have alot of hair in your armpits, you would. It might come in on its own, or having less hair in your pits doesn't make you less of a man. ...Read more

You are okay...: Glad to see you do well in developing secondary sex characteristics as described since physical growth will naturally stop soon after reaching adulthood as predetermined by genetic codes - for men, roughly at 18. So, don't worry and enjoy your youth and teens to unfold your life in decades to come. ...Read more

How's it working?: If you're horny like other guys your age, and are having erections and ejaculations like they are, then things are going to be fine. Around 5% of men never get chest or good facial hair. Mr. Newman (photo), considered the best-looking male specimen of his age, never complained. If you're not having an ejaculation at least every few days, get with your personal physician now. ...Read more

Suddenly, my armpit hair and leg hair is growing in very patchy. Like, bald spots. But all of my thyroid bloodwork came back normal. Possible causes?

It depends/ nonspec.: This seems like a nonspecific sign. It might depend on what products, if any, you might use to groom those areas. For example, if waxing or heat grooming instruments are used, the roots might be removed and the hair may take real long to or may never grow back. Stress might also be a reason, as might your gastroenteritis. If it gets worse, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi, I'm 18 and I am very concerned about me penis size and voice. I am covered in hair (face, legs, pubes) but cannot grow armpit hair. My voice is still high also. My penis is about 1" flaccid and about 4.5" erect. Am I just a very late bloomer or shoul

A Fine Penis: I had a girlfriend who loved me for my "versatile" penis. Don't get hung up on it, they love them all. If someone dumps you just for a larger guy, you don't want her anyway.
If concerned about endocrine status, start with a family Doc, who you should have anyway. There's a big normal range, so don't worry until you have a complete workup and a Dr. Tells you to worry, which seems unlikely. ...Read more
