When boys grow leg hair do they stop growing in height?

Not necessarily

Leg
Some boys have leg hair from a young age (certain ethnic groups). Now, he is done growing when he grows enough facial hair to require shaving every day.

Is it safe to wax my legs and my thighs? will the hair stop growing for a while than shaving? what waxing do you recommend?

Yes

Extremity-lower-one_side
It's safe to wax in general. Some people do get skin irritation from it though so be aware if you tend to have sensitive skin. The hair won't stop growing but your skin will remain smoother longer as it will take longer for the hair to grow back. As for which type to recommend- that I really couldn't say-sorry !

Mix together equal parts turmeric, gram flour and water until it becomes a paste. Apply to hair and rub the cream off once it has dried. When applied consistently, turmeric and gram flour reduce and slow the growth of hair.

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.

Alopecia
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.
