Dupuytrens Contracture:

I started using Jean's mixture (Lugol's iodine, DMSO, magnesium oil) three days ago. Already the lump is reduced, and the cord (tail coming from the lump) has shrunk from about an inch long to about 1/2 inch. This is working!

I have also been using Magnesium oil on hand when I go to bed. Definitely helps.

I had surgery on my contracture on my pinkie but had the beginnings of another contracture on my middle finger, it was quite aggressive and the chord was tight. I have been using Magnesium oil spray, then a cotton tip dipped into Lugol's iodine rubbed on, then dropping DMSO and massaging into my hand twice a day and in only 3 weeks the chord on my hand has softened and the pulling is almost gone. I honestly wouldn't have believed it would be as effective in such a short time. My surgeon can't believe it either as he said it would eventually need to be operated on.

My husband has Dupuytren's contracture as well. He applies a mixture of iodine, magnesium oil and dmso to his hand twice a day and just rubs it in. The knots are about gone and his hand is flexible. This is after about two weeks of consistent application of the mixture. I believe the iodine is the key. Then the dmso helps drive the iodine further into the skin and the magnesium oil helps keep it moist. It seems like a miracle to him. His doctor has Dupuytren's and had surgery. Now the doctor has a long scar across the palm of his hand. Generally the knots return within a year and apparently consistent surgery would be the remedy. I think a little mixture to soften and prevent it is more sensible, cheaper and keeps it at bay. I'm sure diet helps as well.
