Aloe Vera and DMSO: Apply Aloe Vera gel (from a health food store) and DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) from a health food store or feed store (veterinary supply). Apply the DMSO first. It's a powerful anti-inflammatory substance--and excellent skin penetrant and pain reliever. It will enhance the effect of the Aloe Vera.
