DMSO is used for muscle pain, skin problems, wound healing and more. My first experience with it was over 30 years ago. I had surgery and the next day the doctor came to remove the bandage. I had about a 6″ incision and expected to see stitches but there were none. The incision looked as if it had healed closed already. Well, the doctor was foreign and I remembered reading about DMSO being used in foreign hospitals for healing from surgery. I remembered something else about it, too. You can get a taste of garlic in your mouth and I had awakened from the anesthesia with a garlic taste in my mouth. It works.
