Quote:
There are five main causes of body hair loss- skin conditions, hormonal disorders, medications and other medical illnesses, stress, and diet. Certain skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, skin injury, and burns, cause damage to the hair follicles and surrounding cells making hair growth impossible. In some of these instances, especially in the case of severe skin burns, the cell damage can be irreversible so the body hair loss is also permanent.


I'm not a doctor or have even had this problem happen before, but if I were you I think going and taking this to your doctor would be a good idea. From there they can try and figure out what is going on and what kind of treatment they can give you. I'll send you the link to where I got my information from and form there you can read what's on the page, but the best thing to do is go to your doctor cause only they can be sure what's wrong.

You more than likely need to see your doctor in case it is something serious, so it can be treated as soon as possible. I don't know what can cause this, so see your doctor as soon as possible. Take Care, From, Achava

Are you losing the hair where you socks generally are? Or is it an area where your shorts rub? You lose hair natrually where your clothes rub against it. If you play sports with equipment (hockey, football, lacrosse), the padding can also rub the hair off. That's totally natural and normal.
If it's not in an area that stuff rubs against frequently, then I'd consider talking to your Dad before going to your doctor. Since you're generally about as hairy as he, you can ask if his leg hair thins like that, too.
If you still can't figure it out, then a doctor's probably not a bad idea. I dunno if you have to make a special trip, but definitely mention it at your next check-up.

It's definitely something worth mentioning to your Dad to see if he thinks you should see a doctor. It could be something more serious, but it could be because of something simple. Like Ev said, clothing rubbing on your skin can cause hair to thin and fall out. And stress can do weird things to your body, too.

... I wear skinny jeans... Would that cause the loss of hair? And if so, would it not be the whole leg? and no, to the question about where it is, its not by the sock... I dont know my body parts but its like my calf( just googled xD ) But ya its my calf and around the side where iam loosing the hair... But if it were the skinny jeans would it not be my whole leg? Not just my calf? and cant ask my dad... He walked out on us like 5 years ago... Dont talk to him, not even apart of my life now... But ya, I wear skinnys often, so would that cause it?
