Gel Application Sites

Suppose one is using something like Androgel as a boost. Where would the best sites on the body be for an application of transdermal gel?

Personally, I believe the inner forearms, shoulders, neck, and tops of feet(!) to be the best places.

Definitely the scrotum.

…don’t forget behind the knees.

Very funny, Jared. This is a serious question, as I’m on HRT.

I’ll try behind the knees.

Ironically the scrotum is one of the few places you should not apply AndroGel. However, the upper arms and abdomen are good choices judging by most of the literature I’ve seen.

Advise patients of the following:

-AndroGel should not be applied to the scrotum.

My doctor, Dr. Ricky Mac who graduated from the UCLA school of medicine, the doc who prescribed androgel to me, told me to rub it in my back every night. They have a patch that u can put on your balls as well.
