  • These don't appear to be typical acne lesions that you think would be associated with increase testosterone levels. They manifest as deep, painful nodes that take several days to erupt on the skin surface. They rarely form a pustule or express anything other than a clear serous fluid,take 10 days to two weeks to heal and almost always leave a reddish scar. In the lower back area, they have formed in clusters on both the right and left hand "love handle" areas. On the torso area they have formed on the mid abdominal area, around the right pectoral area, and on each lateral rib area, sometimes in an evenly spaced linear pattern. I've looked up information on shingles and Kaposi's as well as other types of skin lesions and nothing really seems to match the pattern. Just wondering if anyone else taking Androgel and/or Clomid had experienced similar skin issues?

  • After having testosterone injections for about 4 months, received no relief from ED. However became short of breath and was later diagnosed with a paralyzed diaphragm. I believe the injections caused this problem.
