First day of Androgel--Frosting

  1. First day of Androgel--Frosting


    I started the androgel today. I applied it to inside upper arms
    inner biceps and some on outer. I used the bottom of a glass , saw this method in a previous post, and it seemed to spread it evenly. This evening I noticed frosting over most of area which was applied. I have hashimos thyroiditis and my skin does get dry. Does this mean I'm not a candidate for TD's? Should I try to apply it to a different area? I don't know if my doc will do shots but I might prefer this anyway, because of the lower DHT levels( like my hair). THanks-Rob


  2. The frosted part is probably just the "vehicle" byt that point. The testosterone should have been absorbed within the first hour or so, because your skin is the actual "sponge" that holds the T for your throughout the day and your body takes it from the part that is in your skin, not the part that is still in the gel.

    Spread Androgel over large area, specially when you using 10grams or close to it.
    Look a leaflet, there is a picture telling you what to do, (middle an bottom of a page).

    (One reason I switched to Tcream 100mg/1gram, I use just 1gram of it, 10x less volume than Androgel.)

  4. I use 5 grams of testogel and I apply it on my upper arms, flanks and upper traps, if I try apply it to only my upper arms I get frosting.
