Application sites for T topical cream
« on: February 18, 2017, 04:51:14 pm »
Been on my new preparation of T cream for the last week and have noted some improvement in concentration and focus however in other areas improvement has been soso with just minor or no improvement.
This has me looking for possible solutions to the lacklustre gains in those defficient areas and one place to look in is application sites.
What do those using creams past and present find to be the best areas for application?

I know that it is suggested that fatty areas are not a good place due to higher aromatisation to E2, also that areas of hair growth are not recommended though to me that sounds sensible to a point but I am not buying in to that even considering hair surface area to skin ratio.

Areas where I am currently applying are: under arm, hip area, chest area, back of the neck, front of the neck, forehead and scrotum.

I apply to most of these areas in each application using maybe 30% to the scrotum and the rest distributed in an even manner to the other or some of the other areas.

What works best for you?

I have my guys apply to the inside of the forearms, then rub together. Finish with the flanks, if necessary.

Don't use your palms or fingers. The skin is so thick the T will never see your bloodstream.

Interesting:  the compounder I used back in the day told me the same thing.  They must have read your stuff. :)
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

Dr. Shippen told me to apply the cream to my scrotum.

A couple of comments:

a) This will significantly boost DHT.  THat can be a pro or a con.

b) You have to be careful and make sure the ingredients are scrotum-friendly, or you'll be explaining to the wife/girlfriend why your nuts are bright purple and red.

Yeah well at least they will glow in the dark! much easier for your significant other to find at night.

I think scrotal skin is actually pretty robust, my skin is easily irritated by most things but I have had no problems with the various self compounded and now commercial preparations that I have used on the scrotum, I just wish the DHT effect was more pronounced.

Robust eh?  ;D. All right, we'll go with that.

1). Dr. Shippen is no doubt wanting to increase DHT.

2). If not, you will find out precisely how long it takes to get into a hot shower.

More likely to treat the inside of your trousers.

Anything contraindicated in thoroughly rubbing in a sachet of T gel all over both sides of both hands and wrists just before bed, and then washing the hands on arising 8 hours later?

Hands are said to absorb T rather poorly.

Plus, you don't want to do that if you live with women and/or children in my opinion.

Now that I am using topical T I do wonder how much is transferred to others, I know its common sense to believe that it does but is there actually any data or studies that quantify it? or is this all just wives tales (playing the devils advocate here).
