Question Thrush Remedy with DMSO?

I was told about a thrush remedy made with 90% DMSO gel, and two other ingredients, but I can't remember them. Has anyone heard of this recipe?

Exposing thrush to air kills it, so theoretically all you have to do is keep your horse's feet clean. Bleach can also be used to kill thrush.

From what I can gather online it's DMSO and Iodine mixed together in a sqeeze bottle.

I have had great luck with "Today" a cow mastitis antibiotic cream. It's relatively cheap and most feed stores carry it. It worked really well on a very stubborn case of thrush.

It makes since to use dmso. I wonder about the heating aspect of it. I hope you find the recipe, I'd like to know!

I use oxine 50/50 with water for a maintence sort of thing then use activated oxine soaks for a more serious problem.
