People on gel
« on: March 15, 2019, 11:03:20 am »
Hey guys,
I'd like to know how you apply gels at summer? I sweat a lot in heat, even right after taking a shower.
Or if you're on holiday and want to swim but 6 hours haven't pass?
How do you deal with these?
Thanks

I make sure that I rub my gel in until its dry to the touch.  If I sweat, at least I know it's been applied as best I can.  I'm on generic AndroGel, and it says I can shower after 2 hours.  I've not heard of the "six hour window" before!  Is that what your gel advises?  If so, maybe you should apply it before bed.

Good luck!

I'm on Testim now, and it says 6 hours before showering or getting water on the applied area.
It also advises to apply it in the mornings, but it's a good idea to do it before bed, I'll ask my doc about it next time.
Thanks! =)

Hi Gentlemen,
                         I am a transwoman but I hope my gel experience can offer some help.
 I find in the tropical heat application to under arms, abdomen, inner thighs or buttocks doesnt dry out totally and hormone levels stay up in the range as a result.

 Also I have tried gel application before bed - this seems to work as well . The gel does need the 2 hour window as you suggested and absorption goes on as you sleep.

 My estrogen comes in sachets probably much like your T.

 Kindest regards, Kirsten.

Unfortunately, AndroGel (at least) can't be applied in those areas.  I tried to put it on my inner thighs once...on MAN, the BURNING was HORRIBLE!  :embarrassed:   AndroGell looks and smells a lot like hand sanitizer, so the alcohol in it may be the reason why.

It is recommended to be applied to the upper arms and then you wear a t-shirt or some other shirt with sleeves overtop of it so that there is no chance of someone else getting accidentally exposed to it.  Since I have a tattoo on one arm, I put it on the inside of my upper arm, and then on the regular place on my other arm.  I think I'd put it on at night and they wear a t-shirt if I had to wait six hours to do anything!

I'm not familiar with Testim, maybe the specs on it are different.

That is interesting Ryuichi, I was unaware of the arm application areas. That really does put a slant on the application method.

Testim is also should be put on shoulders and upper arms, but I put some leftover gel on thighs and it didn't burn so that might be good, thanks for the idea, Kirsten!
Thanks for all the input! =)

I would apply it at night, if it's too bothersome during the day.
