Transfer to children?

Are there any precautions I should take around my children? After I apply the cream is there a risk for my young children if they come in contact with any skin I may have applied the cream too

Thank you for any help you may have. I'm very thankful to have stumbled upon this site and plan on sharing it with friends.

Thank you!

Transfer to children?

Hi Mary Karen No precautions are needed, if you'd asked about oestrogen and testosterone, then yes! The sex hormones can radically alter how a child behaves, and how it develops. There are too many reports of young children being effected, particularly by testosterone creams/gels used by their fathers. This causes aggressiveness in boys and causes early development of breasts etc in girls. The reason for this in the latter is that the enzyme aromatase converts testosterone into oestrogen. In fact this is how all adult women make oestrogen. Progesterone is not a sex hormone, in spite of many health practitioners calling it such. It plays no part in the secondary sexual characteristics which occur at puberty. In fact puberty could be called a proliferative stage in our growth, mostly governed by oestrogen. Progesterone is involved in differentiation. In fact it's so safe it's now used via IV transfusion for brain trauma victims, over 70% of these are men too, see here. Something many of us forget, we are bathed in progesterone for 9 months, it's vital for the development of the foetus and the foetal lungs and brain. It's given to pre-term infants too, although always in conjunction with oestradiol, see here, here, here and here. I've often suggested to women with very young babies and toddlers, to use a pin head amount on their feet to get them to sleep, or calm them down if overactive. It's wonderfully calming for adults too! See here, here and here. Thanks for the kind words! Take care Wray
