Applying Testosterone Gel

  1. Applying Testosterone Gel (Frosting)


    I'm having a minor problem when I apply my gel. It seems to get flaky or chalky and looks like there is white deodorant on me all day.

    I;m applying it on my forearms and rubbing them together like Dr J told me to do. Am I rubbing it too long or too short? Also is this what others call "frosting"?


  2. Yea its frosting, apply it on dry skin after a hot shower, and rub around to spread it out then rub it in, in a circular motion until it starts to feel sticky.

  3. I don't think this is the frosting Dr. John talks about the last time I read this it was about using Androgel or Testim. I think your using a compounded gel I just would not worry about it.

  4. I had exacly this, if I left a thick spot anywhere it would turn to a flake, and if I didnt rub it in enough I would get what looked like deoderant on my arms all day not that it was really noticable, it apeared to be dry skin, I dont get this anymore now that I make sure I rub it in properly.

    Are you on the same thing a compounded gel I know when I was on testim you needed to rub it in well.

  6. I am on testogel but its all practicly the same, testosterone powder, alcohol and a transdermal carrier, I would imagine that white stuff is just testosterone powder as the carrier would sink into the skin and the alcohol would evaporate.

  7. Testogel is Androgel and with this you need to spread it over a good area and not rub it in but let it dry from wet. I would put in on my upper arms and shoulders and down my back as far as I could reach. I did this half the dose on one side and the other half on the other side. If you have frosting it can mean your skin is not leting it in or you did not spread it out far enough. You do need your TT and FT levels up into the upper 1/3 of your labs range then work from there up or down. The gels will make your E2 and DHT go high so test them.

  8. I think you do need to rub it in.

    Testim you do have to rub in but Androgel no you spread it over the area and then let dry from wet. You just can't read about testim and think they are the same they are not.
