Where to apply estrogen cream?

My prescription says any thin skinned area, I'm thinking inner forearm, inner thigh, are there any other's?

Thanks,
Linda

Hi

I was told back of knees, top of feet, my sister puts hers on her neck. I pretty much just switch off between my inner arms and wrists.

Where to apply estrogen cream?

I used to apply to my upper arms, but found my skin was too thin there and the absorption too rapid. That is, the cream wasn't lasting and I was getting a rush at time of application. I switched to the inner thighs and that did the trick for me. My arms may be thin, but the thighs are not.

I think just about anyplace, except the breasts, are okay. You could apply to your wrists, arms, calves. I don't think I would apply to your back as that is fairly close to your breasts.

Here's some info on where you can apply the creams
