Hi I wanted to know some exact ways I can use dmso. IT's a 70% dmso with aloe. I'm using it for some acne scars on my arms and thighs some are keloid. I just wanted to know if there are any precautions since it's a solvent or how to clean the area or anything helpful
Glad to see DMSO is alive and well! I was a ballet dancer in the 70's and DMSO was very popular except that no one could stand you on stage because of the odor. Then, when I became a full time massage therapist, I always shared the benefits of DMSO. My question is; are there any DMSO Clinics? Also, I am about to share DMSO with my friend who is suffering with much round the clock pain as a result of many surgeries for her Ovarian Cancer. No cancer now, but infections, fever and pain!!!
I need directions as to how much dmso I can take, I made the purchase and after reading the instructions of using rubber gloves to mix it, then I was to put it under my tongue, I am just confused as hell about what I am to do.
Also tried the peroxide spray, seem to be doing a great job , then I got the flu. Was this the result of using that spray.

Be very careful with DMSO (Dimenthyl Sulfoxide). As a chemist, I've used DMSO and it is a great compound because it is an EXTREMELY effective solvent.
The reason that the FDA is against DMSO for home use is because it basically dissolves almost anything and takes it along for the ride. Since it is readily absorbed into the skin, anything dissolved in it is also absorbed. This can be dangerous if you inadvertantly come in contact with a hazardous chemical while using DMSO. Many things that are safe when placed on the skin aren't necessarily so when they are absorbed into the body.
DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean. Be very conscious of not contaminating your bottle by dipping anything into it and make sure any container you use is also clean. As long as you're careful, you shouldn't have any problems.

Please be advised that DMSO is highly absorbed into the bloodstream and has a high risk of causing sterilization in humans. Although I highly recommended pain and swelling reliever one should use great caution when applying it to an animal by wearing gloves or know for a fact you are done having children before using it on yourself. I have used the product for many many years on horses and never apply it without gloves on.

DMOS & HSV2 -- Wow, what a product. I had been getting outbreaks every two weeks for over 25 years. Some times I would have up to 17 in one month. They would come one right after another. I tried various creams ointments and meds. After three days on DMSO...no out breaks now for over 2 months and counting!

Hi there I just have to say that I have battled cold sore for my entire life since I was a very small child. These are embarassing and very sore. I found out about DMSO and purchased some. I put it on my lip as soon as I feel that tingling feeling that comes prior to an outbreak. Since using this product the cold sore does not become visable. I am thankful and recommend others who suffer to give it a try.

My good friend's boyfriend is a professor in sleep research at a university in California. When I was visiting them a few weeks ago, I asked if he used dmso in the lab and if so, how did he store it? He told me that they use dmso in many, many experiments and that they always store it in glass bottles. When I told him that I had recently put some of my dmso in a small, cosmetic plastic spray bottle to use with grapefruit seed extract for nail fungus, he looked concerned and suggested that I only store dmso in glass.
Ah, good thing I had that discussion. When I got home from the trip, I smelled the little plastic spray bottle that I had been using the previous 2 weeks. It reaked of chemicals! Yikes!! I compared the smell to the dmso in the thick white plastic bottle that I bought from an online vet supply store, which looks just like the one in Ted's photo. Thankfully the big bottle had a typical dmso odor - a faint scent of garlic. Needless to say, I immediately threw out my spray bottle. Until I find a glass beaker or bottle from a science supply store, I am using a glass dropper for the dmso.
Be warned, be warned!

I finally have some 99% dmso. I have read a ton on what it can do. Now I am ready to mix it with vitamins. I have read people mixing b-12 and b-5. I am going to get some eye drop containers and start the mixing. Question is what is the ratio? mg per ml? do I use just dmso and the vitamin or dilute it with distilled water? how often can I put the drops on my skin per day? also what other vitamins would be safe in this procedure?

Hello, my mother had already had surgery in both knees. And was in constant pain. I had pain in my shoulder and got DMSO for it. One day my mother came and I decided to applied DMSO for her knee pain. She was thrilled and amazed that the pain was gone the next day. I did put it in my armpit elbow area with not too much success yet. I still feel something, not pain but something and it goes and comes. I can not tell you DMSO worked for me. But I have applied it two times, still too soon to tell.
My mother cure was more impressive. Oh, well , I am not telling you more about DMSO because you have to google it and educate yourself very well before any attempt to use it. It is great but delicate. Not for incompetent adults. Please educate yourself if you think it may help you.
Regarding "Industrial" DMSO vs "Medical grade." Several years ago I was interested in DMSO and did quite a bit of research on this stuff. It is truly a wonder product, but I was concerned about the 'purity' thing. So I contacted the company that makes DMSO and asked them about it. This is what they told me. Dmso is Dmso, period. There is no 'medical grade' or 'industrial' grade. It is all the same. DMSO is Dimethyl sulfoxide period. The only difference is how much distilled water is mixed with it. If it is 70% DMSO that just means it has been mixed with 30% distilled water. If it is 99% pure, it means it was mixed with 1% distilled water. If it says 99.9% pure, it has no measurable distilled water mixed with it. PERIOD> So when you read on the internet that 'their' product is "more pure" than anyone elses, you're being "taken". I've seen ads stating that "Our product is only 'Medical grade'" to justify charging as much as 38.00 per bottle!! ? This is ridiculous! I buy my bottle of DMSO at our FEED and SEED store for 7.50!! It is 99% pure and I have been using for years! So don't be taken to the cleaners over this stuff. Do your own research.!!!

DMSO and H2O2 for Migraines:
My boyfriend gets constant and debillatating migraine headaches for the past several years (about once or twice a week)... it is what first brought me to Earthclinic many months ago when I started researching. He has ever since been by guniea pig!! I think that there's a lot of it to do with nutritional defficiencies (which I am still figuring out...) but I FINALLY came up with something that works QUICK in the meantime until I figure out the root cause this treats the symptoms.
I was reading about DMSO and how it could theoretically be used to treat a stroke in an emergency, and I was thinking that headaches have similar problems of lack of oxygen to the brain... so when he came over this morning w terrible headache that had lasted all night and not been relieved by Amerge or Flova prescription migraine pills... I mixed him a cocktail of organic "Monster C" juice, about 1 cup (8 oz.) with a tiny bit (about 1/8 t. DMSO and added a few drops of food grade 35% hudrogen peroxide. We applied an icepack to his forehead and within 20 minutes the headache that had lasted for about 8 hours went away completely! So happy! Hopes this remedy helps someone else.

DMSO and MRSA: Since anything combined with DMSO topically facilitates absorbtion, Would this push the skin affliction into the blood ? If MRSA goes into the blood it's more dangerous to the person.

I have been quite excited about this DMSO product. I just bought a quart that is 99.996 purity. I have used DMSO externally for stubbed toes, joint pain, back pain, Herpes cold sore preventative.
I have used DMSO internally in water *distilled water* I take a cap full in a 16 ounce glass of water. once a day. Sometimes I will do that twice but on the second day in a row of doing that ( 4 cap fulls in two days--the Dr. jacobs bottle lid 8 ounce bottle lid) I have trouble sleeping the second night because I am up peeing very frequently.
the Frequent urination is not much different than the affect from excessive blood sugar.
I just learned that ringworm on the skin is also a symptom of poor blood sugar control.
I suffer from a diabetes symptoms and am looking to solve the problem with foods and other natural solutions. I think it is type II diabetes because I have frequent urination, often have excessive dry mouth, low energy after meals, tingling feet and fingers ( mostly feet and the little toes it is most noticeable),
I was wondering if that DMSO might have some positive affects on the Diabetes issue. I am a bit of a risk taker so I am trying it. I would rather not get shot up with Doctor prescribed pills, (pharakia-- witchcraft, in Greek).
