    Didn't notice a difference at 2 pumps/day, so I upped it to 3-4 pumps a day. Now I'm starting to get peeling skin at all the different sites (inside of feet, inside of elbows, and on wrists)... Just starting to maybe feel a difference, and now this. :(

    it dries you out which I would assume would include your skin if you take enough.

    just exfoliate as per the instructions and maybe cut back a little.

    Nope, I actually think my skin seems smoother/better now that I'm on it.

    well, it's not my overall skin, it's just at the application sites. I wash with a loofah and scrub sites every day, it's like the AIFM eats away at a layer of skin and leaves peeling around the edges of the wet spot. :dunno:

    I don't ever exfoliate and I don't get the peeling skin.

    you may just have dry skin, which estrogen suppression can exacerbate. generally most people dont have the issue that you describe since the solution itself tends to have emolient properties.

    try different sites for a bit and apply aloe vera to the dry areas. You can also apply aloe to areas that are dry that you are not applying AIFM to that day or at that time. ie if using forearms in the AM. after evening shower apply aloe.

    generally dont reccomend applying moisturizers over an application, though pure aloe gel would be OK (waiting at least 20-30 minutes after application would be preferable.

    but as mentioned this is not common.

    you E levels must be pretty low to begin with (or at least your peripheral E synthesis). You can actually half dose. the pump is 200mcl (or .2ml). you can get a insulin syringe and draw out .1ml (10units) or even less or a .15ml (15 units). (of course you still want to shake well before doing this- if you have the black cap that all units are now shipped with (to prevent leakage from the pump) this might be more convenient)

    Hmm... I don't think it's estrogen supression, because it's ONLY in the sprayed areas I have the peeling issue, not dry skin everywhere. :dunno:

    I'll try the aloe tho.

    Is there a way to get that black cap locally? My white cap always seems to sputter, hard to get anything near an accurate dose.

    black cap is the shipping cap (its just a regular cap, no pump), that was a suggestion for people that wanted to use a syringe to draw up the solution for application (though you could also do that).

    if pump "sputters" try giving it little mini pumps to prime it before actually pumping to apply (so press down a little but not enough to push out solution).

    really varies. typically 2-4 pumps is the average dosing.

    could you be more descriptive of the issue (as well as your overall bodyfat and fat deposition pattern) including its appearance, when it presented, anything you were taking at the time or that you think was instrumental, also if it worsened (what was involved- ie weight gain, alcohol, drugs, prohormones, etc)

    No, but I got crazy flu-like symptoms that wouldn't go away until I stopped taking it.
