You can mix a chemical called DMSO with ibuprofen and apply it to the area. I usually do this then cover the spot with a large bandage (I have knee and shoulder pain issues.)

DMSO is NOT approved by use in humans by the FDA- mostly because when you apply DMSO to your skin, your breath starts to smell like garlic. This make it impossible to establish a control group for testing.

DMSO can be obtained at livestock feed stores and is sold as a solvent.

Because DMSO is an EXCELLENT solvent and gets through your skin quite readily, you need to make sure your hand are clean, whatever you use to combine the ibuprofen and DMSO is clean (I use a mortar and pestle that is use solely for DMSO- crush the ibuprofen and mix in DMSO) and that your skin is clean.

This is what I have done in the past. I am not telling you that you should do it but that it has worked for me in the past as a fast, effective, and inexpensive way to treat pain transdermally.

No, they still have the GI [Stomach] effects as taking the medication by mouth. Talk to your DR. about getting something else or let him know that you need treatment for your stomach if he cont. to give you the ibuprofen.
