No hair on chest and face. Advise?

i am 19 years old.I think I'm healthy normal guy, but, this problem has put me mentally down. I even have no hair on my chest or hands, though my friends have. I'm unable to remove my shirt in front of my friends due to the lack of chest hair. I have been teased by them sometimes, because, boys who are below my age have hair than me. Since, mustache & beard are secondary sexual characters of a male, does this mean that I'm not male?? I have no problem in the growth of hair on my head, since childhood, hair on my head grew fast. & I'm very much satisfied about my sexual performance too. But, because of this mustache problem I'm really down. Can somebody tell me why is this and is there any treatment for this?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Let me assure you, that body and facial hair has no relationship with sexual performance.

Hair growth hormones are generally considered to be male-dominant androgens such as testosterone and androsterone. They also determine the sexual characteristics of men. But slight variations can result in reduction in male characteristics but not in male sexual characteristics.

So just don't worry. So many men suffer the same fate as low hair in chest. Enjoy the limited life period without having such silly worries.
