I recently noticed a little-known medical condition which I have tentatively named ‘policeman’s ankle’. I wonder how prevalent this condition is?
I’m not sure how long I’ve been suffering from this malady as I’m not a great one for paying much attention to the state of my own body. I’d hazzard a guess that it’s possibly years & years.
I recently found that although averagely hirsuit throughout my rather fine male body, the hair on my legs stops abruptly about six inches above my ankles. There is not a hair in sight from that point south until you reach my toes.
I have no meaningful medical knowledge but I believe the root cause is solely to do with the fact that I have, for in excess of 25 years, worn high ankle boots every day for work. They appear to have had a sandpaper effect & rubbed my lower limbs devoid of hair. I mean it’s as smooth as a baby’s bum down there.
I’m not sure if I can go onto a public beach in the summer now that I have noticed. I’ll be constantly glancing down to check if a follicle has sprung root or looking around wondering whether hordes of people are staring at me.
Does this happen to all wearers of higher-than-ankle boots?
I wonder if I can sue…
