Cushings is *sometimes* but usually not idiopathic (no discernable reason) -- typically it comes after years of steroids. It's NOT a diagnosis you want.
Is the skin dark or discolored or shiny? At ALL abnormal or is there just no hair?
However -- a lot of things can cause that -- from a liver imbalance to fungal issues.
Particularly if the skin is dark or shiny, try this -- get some pure tea tree oil (you can even get that at Wal-mart -- and I mean the essential oil NOT hair stuff with tea tree in it -- it's on the aisle where the herbs are -- usually a little 2 oz bottle is less than $5).
Just once a day massage a drop of tea tree into the bare areas -- try it for a few weeks and see if it changes it.
