Pure DMSO has been found to be an effective treatment for nerve and arthritis pain, interstitial cystitis, chronic inflammatory bladder disease, cancer, asthma, speeding wound healing (including sprains, burns, and surgical incisions) and other skin conditions. Available in liquid and gel form.
Commonly Used for:
-Decreasing nerve pain caused by the herpes zoster virus (shingles)
-Inflammatory bladder disease
-Treating skin and tissue damage caused by chemotherapy when it leaks from the IV
-Arthritis. Developing evidence suggests that applying DMSO topically might help decrease symptoms associated with both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
-A condition called amyloidosis. Some early evidence suggests that applying DMSO topically might help treat amyloidosis.
-High blood pressure in the brain. Some evidence suggests that DMSO used intravenously might lower high blood pressure inside the brain after head trauma.
-Helping skin heal after surgery
-Skin problems such as calluses, bunions, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: Medications applied to the skin, eyes, or ears (Topical drugs) interacts with DMSO (DIMETHYLSULFOXIDE)
DMSO can sometimes increase how much medicine the body absorbs. Applying DMSO along with medications you put on the skin or in the eyes or ears can increase how much medicine your body absorbs. Increasing how much medicine your body absorbs might increase the effects and side effects of the medicine.
If you are taking drugs of any kind, it would be smart to find out the biochemical results of combing supplementation with drugs. Therefore, talking to an educated person on this topic could prove to be a wise move on your part.
Suggested Instructions for Usage:
Topical Application to Skin: For prevention of some side effects of cancer treatment: 77-90% DMSO is typically applied under medical supervision every 3-8 hours for 10-14 days.
Shingles (herpes zoster): 5-40% idoxuridine in DMSO is within 48 hours after the appearance of a rash and applied every 4 hours for 4 days. (Idoxuridine is a prescribed medication.)
Nerve pain: 50% DMSO solution can be used 4 times daily for up to 3 weeks.
Osteoarthritis: 25% DMSO gel can been used 3 times a day, and 45.5% DMSO topical solution has been used 4 times a day.
Internal Use in Bladder: For frequent urge to urinate (interstitial cystitis) and for chronic inflammatory bladder disease: Healthcare providers drip a DMSO solution into the bladder using a tube called a catheter. The catheter is removed and the patient is asked to hold the solution for a period of time before urinating.
