Using medication of 2% mixture of testosterone from compounding pharmacy. Forming blisters. Side effects of medicine?

I recently started using a medication that was made by a compounding pharmacy for 2 percent mixture of testosterone . When i use this medication i form small blisters on the inside of my mouth right stound the backside of my lips . If i stop the med the existing blisters begin to subside and i do not form any new ones. I thought i was having a reaction to the med - i called my dr and he said he never heard ofbthis before. I should continue the med and make sure i was my hands. Now that i am using it again the blisters are forming again. They are very Painful. Am i having a reaction to the med. i also get very nauseaed when i eat.

Hi Dalsaver2,

Blister formation is an adverse reaction of testosterone when it is applied topically.. Since the blister disappeared on stopping the drug and reappeared on starting again its due to the drug only...
Nausea is also a side effect of testosterone use..
Whether to use or discontinue the drug purely depends on for what purpose you are using the drug, its purely based on risk benefit ratio...
With regards,
Dr. Parthipan
