I just today stumbled into this surprising testimonial:
"Verified Purchase (DMSO Cream)
Let me tell you folks if you ever get cold sores - this stuff will cure it forever. Just place a little bit on the nape of your neck for 3 days at the first sign of a tingle. Do this for 3 days and say good by to that nasty looking virus. I used to get this 3 times a year for over 30 years and haven't had an outbreak in 5 years. It works for Genital Herpies as well just place a small amount just above your tail bone for 3 days and watch the miracle." https://www.amazon.com/DMSO-Cream-Rose-Scented---/dp/B000ZCVVI8/ref=sr_1_10_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1476391768&sr=1-10&keywords=dmso
Use caution because DMSO should be used on freshly cleaned skin. It will carry anything directly into the cells and bloodstream. I use DMSO to carry Colloidal Silver into my fungus infected toenails. Fungus killed overnight !
