Around 5% of men never get chest hair or beards thick enough to grow well; these men don't go bald. In the usa, many (maybe most) women prefer this. It's genetic and you're unlikely to alter it.

See answer: Antivirals, not antibiotics, are used for treating herpes infections.

Get expert care e.g. NHS GUM clinic, ASAP for accurate diagnosis & Rx if herpes. ...Read more
