Applying Gel to Other Places than Label Says?



I’m using Tostran (AKA. Fortesta), and it says to use it on abdomen or inner thighs. It says to avoid other areas. I know these instructions differ for all T gels. I want to apply it to my upper arms and shoulders, as studies show this to be the best area for optimal absorption.

My question is: Is there ANY problem with applying the gel a different place than suggested? I can’t seem to come up with any good evidence against it…
