Aerogel 1.62%

I am presently nursing an injury called meralgia pareschetica...using bed rest, stretching and use of a whirlpool/hottub.  I am also under a prescription of Andogel 1.62%.  My question is...I put my Androgel onat night before I go to bed.  Right no, I have to get up every 6 hours to stretch and get in the whirlpool.  My children get in this whirlpool aft I do?  

Will the Andogel be washed off of me after the 6 ours and will it affect my children?

Ive read allthe side effects that can happen if they even touch the stuff!  Please help me, I don't want either of my children to be affected by this.

Hi there!

Though androgel is likely to have been absorbed in 6 hours it is suggested to wash the applied skin thoroughly with soap and water before using common contact items, to be on the safer side.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
