One of its side effects can be itching or bleeding, so people should take care when they take DMSO. Their doctor should tell them by the potential dangers that DMSO implies. Our bodies are not the same, so we do not know how we will react. This is why we have to care care and to think twice if it is safe to use DMSO or not. It is very interesting that even though DMSO is controversial, it has good effects on brain activity or brain damage.
