Anyone use? Thoughts or advice on when to apply and how often? How long can you safely use for?
I just picked some up. Have chronic Elbow pain/tendonitis. Tried everything, including rest, with no relief. Hoping this helps.
From what I understand, the newer dmso is not quite what it was a few years back. I have a tub of old dmso & I use it sparingly. I bought mine from an agway farm store about 10 years ago. Mine is a clear jelly like substance with a powerful smell. It works wonders on my soar shoulders. However it does leave a red rash looking blotches which stay with me for a few hours after use. Some people say that you could taste it sometimes after applying. It supposed to have a garlic like taste. I've never tasted it after using mine.
I have had DMSO IV along with other IVs from my anti aging endo.
I thought topical you used DSMO to deliver something else or another substance through the skin. It carries medicines, steroids or whatever through dermal layers. They formally used DMSO to use to deliver steroid to race horse joints, ligaments or tendons.
Does DSMO topical by itself do anything?
Yes. Sometimes I spray some joint flex or I use liquid heet, & then apply the dmso. The dmso will absorb whatever you use deep into your muscle fibers.
DMSO is brilliant but don't over use it and defo leave the area uncovered until dry then wash the area
Foe example if you were to put a t shirt on straight away then it can and would take the dye from the t into your skin! So make sure your skin is clean etc
I use for the odd muscle injury, helps to take inflammation away and movement
can dmso be used to get roids in your body transdermally hypothetically speaking?
Hmm.. where can this be found.. someone PM ME!!!

Going to give some feedback to my own thread.
I've been applying to affected areas (elbow, knee) once EOD. I use it at night after I shower, to make certain the area is clean.
I am using 90% pure DMSO. It burns like hell for about 20 mins after applying. Makes your skin look like it has a bad rash. After that the pain subsides. It is definitely effective for reducing inflammation. Both knee and elbow have been feeling better, however Ive also been giving those joints rest from heavy weights. Still working them out, just not as heavy.
Will try updating periodically if anyone is interested.
How does this compare to MSM or MSM cream?
DMSO breaks down into MSM iirc
