My armpits are very hairy and I wonder how much of the axiron my body is actually absorbing? Is it beneficial to shave your underarms while using this medication?
If you feel you are loosing a significant amount of the drug to hair that is in the way, by all means, try shaving it off. But also know that the drug induces hair growth as a secondary sexual characteristic.
So, you may find you need/want to shave more frequently.
As long as the drug is reaching your skin, and you are allowing it to dry there, you're problably getting a good dose of it.
But again, if you are concerned, try it.
How do you feel about shaving just one arm at a time? Or perhaps doing a trim job around the armpit to reduce but not eliminate all the hair.
Also, you may find the regrowing hair to be itchy. Some people can't stand that sensation and abandon shaving because of it.
