I really hope someone can help me here, as this problem is starting to get me down. I am a thirty year old male who eats well and exercises most days of the weeks (weights and cardio). I am 5' 11" and weigh around 13st with an average body fat count. Over the past year or so I have started to lose hair from my legs - namely a patch just above my right knee and a lot from the outsides of my lower legs. There is no itching or rash, but there is a noticeable amount of hair loss. The rest of my body remains quite hairy and there is also hair growing on my back (especially in one patch). I still have a "collar" of hair around my ankles and on the tops of my feet, but I am beginning to worry that I will soon lose all my leg hair. I am getting married in August and would very much like to get this sorted before then if possible.:confused:P.S. If it would help, I can send pictures of the effected areas.
