Probably nothing: There are a few old articles in the medical literature about topical treatment of gynecomastia, but I am not aware that it is effective. There are many side effects of androgen treatment. Gynecomastia can be very effectively treated with surgery that includes liposuction and direct removal of breast tissue.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
