a bit of caution using DMSO , it is a chemical which will draw other items through your skin make sure you do it clean with no other chemicals or you could wind up poisoning your self . just a few bits of a poison would make you ill . using the DMSO you should be clean from all other items before you use it wash and rinse your hands first off and then do not handle any other chemicals until you have it applied and then wash it off later when it has absorbed using clear water .
