Penetrates through the skin, mucous membranes, the cell wall of bacteria (increases their sensitivity to antibiotics) and other biological membranes, increases their permeability to drugs. The drug is low toxic.
When the drug is applied, dimethyl sulfoxide is detected in the blood serum after 8â15 minutes, and the maximum content is observed after 2â8 hours.
