More seriously though, I am actually using the patch on the recommendation of my doctor and because I'm lucky enough to have my insurance cover this so cost isn't as big an issue. (I empathize with all of you who are paying full price.) The problem is that my skin starts itching and even burning a bit almost exactly 30 minutes after I apply it! It stays red for a day after I remove it, even though I put the next one on a different place. I'm seeing my doctor in four weeks, but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I'm mainly hoping I'm just allergic to the adhesive rather than to testosterone itself! Has anyone found out that they are allergic to the gels or creams?
