Skin feels dry, tight, and sunburned

I had a TVH 6 mos ago. I am on 1 mg estradiol and was on a test cream with .25 estrogen as well.

About 5-6 wks after I added the cream, a rash appeared on my leg and abdomen. Then I got a headache that lasted 6 days and even my migraine pills would not make it go away. At the same time I was feeling very sunburned-in the dead of winter. I inquired at the pharmacy when I picked up my synthroid, he suggested it was the testesterone creme and said I might stop it until I see my dr.

I don't go in for another 2 weeks. I still feel terribly sunburned and wrinkled --especially when I bend my legs. The rash never went away completely, but it is not as prominent. The burned feeling drives me crazy.

Is this just dry skin?

It's possible that you are allergic to an ingredient in the cream. I would give your doctor a call.
