Steroids can worsen existing skin pathologies. Athletes being treated for acne often stop responding to normal treatment regimens if they also continue to use the drugs. Some cases of comparatively benign acne can progress to the disfiguring inflammatory types. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease in which, for unknown reasons, immune cells attack skin cells, resulting in red, scaly patches. One bodybuilder had controlled his psoriasis condition through the use of a topical cream, but when he began using steroids, his condition considerably deteriorated. Eventually his psoriasis became resistant to treatment. But when he stopped using steroids, the psoriasis stabilized and again responded to simple skin-cream treatment. 6
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
I spent over seven years of my life, exercising till I dropped, with no results to show for it. I did split routines at the gym, trained each rep to failure and did dozens of isolation exercises. I did hundreds of pushups every day, and hours of cardio. Like Rocky Balboa, I’d get up at the crack of dawn every morning while everyone else was still snugly tucked into their beds, and I would go for a 1-2 hour jog whether it was raining or freezing cold. It felt like shit most of the time, but I kept telling myself it would pay off… I kept telling my self “No pain, no gain” and guess what? It didn’t pay off. I got a whole loada pain, and very little gain.
