Androgel applied on Genitals - Can I put AndroGel on my balls?
How & Where to Apply AndroGel?
Normally, as suggested by the manufacturer, one can apply AndroGel to his abdomen (Stomach) or Upper arms and shoulders. But the question arises whether AndroGel can be applied to other parts of the body including shin/ ankle, or foot? Can I put AndroGel on my balls?
The answer is “No” You cannot administer any medication dependent on alcohol to the balls because it will hurt and cause discomfort to the skin.
For two primary reasons, the suggested Androgel sites are usually the upper arms/back:
- The majority of men's clothes cover these areas to avoid unintended exposure (and the effect) to females. Applying to the genitals of those engaging in sexual activity can allow testosterone to be passed to their sex partners, which may lead to unintended side effects.
- AndroGel is intended to treat low levels of testosterone (Low T). When administered to the skin of the arms/back the testosterone is absorbed and retained in a skin layer called the dermal layer, which is then released gradually over time into the bloodstream. Penis & scrotum skin doesn't have the same quantity of dermis, and this will make the testosterone absorbed in a way that is not acceptable for in its FDA approval.
What if I apply AndroGel on my balls?
The testosterone gel (AndroGel) is applied twice a day to the scrotum. A huge amount of post-marketing data supports this. As the pharmacist would say, this affects absorption, so apply half of the amount twice daily. People often ask, “Can I put AndroGel on my balls?” The simple answer to this question is “Just Don’t”. It’s not safe to put gel on the scrotum or testicles.
If the Androgel reaches the body more distant from the testicle, more testosterone may be released by the testis, which will be beneficial with the Androgel Therapy. While Androgel may have a profound effect if applied there because the testis and penis react directly to testosterone, even if the total testosterone is dropped.
How does AndroGel gets absorbed within the body by applying it to the skin?
Over time, the testosterone gel is absorbed by the skin — you do not have to rub it in. The alcohol in the gel allows for better absorption by the skin. Skin absorbs more when warm, so applying after a bath will help the body absorb the maximum dose that the doctor prescribes.
The application of a moisturizer to the skin an hour after the gel also helps to absorb it. However, even four hours later, the medicine is still being absorbed so a shower will wash it off. The shoulder is a safer place than the abdomen, so use it there at all times, but you may change sides.
Applying AndroGel directly to the balls isn't recommended. So, if you're willing to explicitly add AndroGel to your balls then consult your doctor. Applying to the penis or balls directly would help to absorb testosterone more quickly.
