DMSO, or dimethylsulfoxide, is a potent compound that delivers intense, targeted relief for acute pain, such as posttraumatic soft-tissue injuries, acute bursitis, strains, and sprains. It allows for accelerated crossing of tissue membranes, with the skin in particular. Known for its therapeutic properties, especially for the healing of injuries, DMSO can be applied on sprained ankles, pulled muscles, dislocated joints, and fractures to help reduce pain.
Use of DMSO can definitely improve the quality of life for those suffering from joint pain and limited range of motion. The most commonly reported side effect with DMSO is garlic breath and a distinctive body odour; a small price to pay considering the wealth of benefits.
Adults: Apply 8–12 ml on affected area three times daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Make sure the affected area is thoroughly cleansed before application. Wash your hands before and after application. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes; if this happens, rinse thoroughly with water. For external use only.
