Does anyone know where I can purchase 90% DMSO solution in a bottle in Canada?
I have a severe fungal infection on my chin and neck that has spread to my scalp. Over the past year I've tried ACV, Iodine, Tea Tree, Garlic paste etc. Nothing natural has worked.
My primary doctor here in Canada first prescribed Lamicil, then Lamicil tablets. This combination slowed the fungal growth but did not eliminate the fungus on my chin. I am now waiting for an appointment with a dermatology specialist which is another 5 months wait. In the meantime I read somewhere applying Nizarol shampoo worked for some individuals and this is also working for me. I apply the shampoo with 2% Ketoconazole directly to the affected areas in the morning and do not wash off until bed time.
The problem with using the shampoo is it dries out the skin and after application, in about 3 days, my skin visibly scales and begins to shed. This appearance is disconcerting and is a concern since I work with clients. I read somewhere someone using Lamisil cream mixed with DMSO applied directly to infected area has worked for them and I want to try that. Using the DMSO as a carrier for Lamisil may be as effective as the Nizarol without the dryness, scaling and peeling.
