Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Are you allowed to trim the hair on the top of your thighs and on the top part of your leg at the front if the hairs are big to stop you from having doubts when using the toilet or doing ghusl for e.g. having doubts whether the private organ has touched a hair after urinating because it is so close to each other?


A: Yes

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
