I took my 4 yr old grandson to the doctor for a rash he has had for a few days, as my daughter was at work. Since my daughters insurance has just been changed, I had to go to the urgent care doctor so it would be covered on her insurance. (rash is minor).

While there, the Dr. asks, has he always had this much hair on his legs? The answer was yes, pretty much. To which he says, "Not to alarm you, however you should take him to his pediatrician and have him check this. He could possibly have a sex hormone issue.
