Q) My estrogen cream does not seem to be absorbing. Any ideas on how to better absorb?E
A) Often times, when someone is not absorbing the cream well (needing to use much larger amounts than normal to get the effects); I start with asking, “How are you applying the cream?” You should always exfoliate the arm skin first. You can do this daily in the bath/shower with a loofah or washcloth. Exfoliate after washing, as many body washes contain oils that interfere with absorption.
Secondly; starting with dry arm, apply the cream by spreading a thin layer over a large area of the inner arm (think about mid forearm all the way up through bicep). Make sure to alternate arms with each dose.
