Skin is a skin, results you see in a blood test.
Stay away from genitals, just keep your briefs on while applying.
Androgel works, but it is a big volume, I used 10grams.
I switched to Tcream, 100mg/1gram
Aply to middle of one calf then spread the whole thing by rubbing both calfs, wait 10 minutes, put pants on.
Handy, specially with my infant grandson around.
I also use 1gram of 100mg/1gram pregnenolone at the same time, also on the calf.
Next script I will ask to mix Test with pregnenolone to still reduce volume.
Tcream and pregnenolone cream cost $1/day each.
Not sure if DHEA is good as a cream?
Does anybody know?

With all my DIM that I am taking I do not use Arimidex.
Last few weeks wood been good, thank you, could use extra hottie.
So what can be put into a creme:
also this people put in a cream
7,8 benzoflavone (from Passiflora)
Chrysin (from Passiflora)
so probably they also could be put into a cream for completeness.

Getting back to the topic,,,,,
This is a good question.. I suffer from frosting and I hate going to the gym with having white ashy looking arms..
I'd love to try apply it elsewhere but worry about the absorption.

My blood tests were in upper of expected range.
The gel is very thin, it flows thru fingers before you know it.
At first I was noting lots of white spots on bathroom floor.
Splitting each 5grams into four or five portions helps.

1. draw blood (2) two hours after applying gel
2. draw blood (22) twenty two hours after applying gel
That makes about 190ng/dL difference in readings.
How do we reconcile this.
We probably would like to know (accurately) both of those numbers.
If faced with testing one of them I think the lower number may be a better choice.
Please expand on relationship to estrogen imbalance
Picture is from:
Look at 10G Androgel and 180 days line.

I apply on either/both arms and on either/both thighs. I don't know if it makes a difference regarding absorption but like you I get dry skin. I also get a little acne break out if I only do my arms (the right more than the left for some reason).
I was on the patch at 2.5 mg and my levels went to 1007 so she (my D.O.) put me on the gel and only 1 pump (1.25 mg). I am do to take labs next week so I'll find out what my new levels are. I started out at at 317 on one lab and 297 on another (LabCorps).
