      Androgel or whatever this diarist is talking about.

      You rub the gel into your skin where it is absorbed.  If you were to grab up an unclothed child in your arms before it dries, or within a short time after it drying - on your ARMS - then the gel could rub off onto the child's skin and be absorbed.

      But a one-time contact isn't going to do anything.  It would have to be repeated exposure.

      And casual contact, like shaking someone's hand or a clothed child being picked up by a clothed person hours after the gel has dried?  No issue.  Brushing against someone in a crowded hallway?  ZERO chance of any issues.  

      What other casual contact is common in today's excessively paranoid world?  Particularly with strangers - practically none to zero!  Unintentional skin to skin contact with strangers within minutes of applying the gel?  Again, so close to zero it cannot be measured.  

      This sounds like some sort of crazy over reaction.  I didn't see the first diary but it sounds pretty off-base from this apology diary.
