Splitting Dose?


My younger brother was put on TRT and recently started breaking out. Mostly red inflamed bumps some white heads. I am not sure what his dose is at the moment but, was wondering if splitting the dose may have an effect or if it is dose dependant.


  • I told him to make a derm appointment for Accutane.


You should read up on sexual complications in people treated with Accutane. Just lower the dosage of Test and DHT will decrease.

It sounds like your little brother could use a hormone specialist who can manage side effects, doesn’t sound like his current doctor is up to the task.

If you need references I’m sure we could provide some.


Topical salicyclic acid. Oxy acne pads.

Splitting dose will help lower DHT spikes.

Don’t use Accutane.
