This is Dr. David

this is not usually a problem.

hair body growth distribution is affected by ethnicity and age usually and gender

I bet you have some very fine hair growth on your body skin outside of your pubic area.

male patter hair loss can cause hair loss or no hair growth on head.

sometimes thyroid abnormalities can affect hair growth.

has this been a long time that you have not had hair growth?

let me know if you have other questions.

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
