Upsides

  • You're less likely with this formulation to transfer testosterone topical solution to another person since this is applied to the armpits -- unlike some other forms of topical testosterone.
  • You can use your regular deodorant or antiperspirant, but just make sure to apply that first before using testosterone topical solution.
