    FORTESTA 2% GEL QUESTION
    avatar
    An_251011 posted:
    I have been prescribed Fortesta 2% Gel for low testosterone. For the first couple days I have been applying as directed. Two pumps on each upper/inner thigh per morning (40mg total), rubbing into the skin with one finger, then waiting two hours before showering. I have fairly hairy legs, from upper thighs down to my ankles. I noticed that some of the gel is just sticking to the hair, not absorbing into the skin after drying. I can't help that. Then I saw a doctor on youtube demonstrate applying the gel to the inside of the lower arms, rubbing them together, then wiping any leftover on the flanks.

    Any Fortesta users out there stray from the recommended application site?

    I would call the pharmacy or your Dr and find out if you can move the application location.
