My first day using DMSO was a complete success. DMSO stings like sunburn at 100% dilution. It also turns the skin red just like sunburn. But that only lasts about 20 minutes. It gets itchy, prickly & stings. Then the stuff soaks into the skin – you dont rub it.
After 10 minutes the analgesic property is pretty much 100%. I could feel zero pain in my shoulder that has hurt for 11 weeks. I could even stretch in positions that would have dropped me to the floor in agony an hour earlier.
This analgesia lasts for 3-5 hours and is very pronounced. Yesterday I had the best workout I have had in 11 weeks – it was great.
You do need to be careful because there is such great pain reduction you dont want to forget you have an injury. The smell is there but not sickening to the user. I dont know how it would smell to another person. Probably quite bad.
As for the anti inflammatory effect it will take a couple of weeks to kick in I expect.
With DMSO you must be very careful not to contaminate it with any toxins. I intend to use Aloe Vera gel to help with the skin sting but I will only use 100% pure Aloe with no nasty chemicals added.
Same if you want to use it with vitamins etc. Only use a small amount as it will go straight into your blood using this stuff. Anything under 400 ng/mol molecular weight will absorb.
So by itself DMSO is non toxic but is as poisonous as anything mixed with it.
Large studies have shown 70-80% success for tendon tears & 80-90% for bursitis.
Here is the bottle I have:
