Burns, Cold or Hot

We have used DMSO on hot burns (scalding) and cold burns (frostbite) with unbelievable success. DMSO is a transfer agent so it has to be used very, VERY carefully as it will take whatever is on the skin into your body. As long as frostbite isn't thawed out (stays frozen and white) DMSO will stop the frostbite dead in it's tracks, once the frostbite is thawed DMSO is much, much less effective. With hot burns it should be used as soon as possible after the burn unless the skin is contaminated.
