DMSO is dimethyl sulfoxide. It's a solvent quickly absorbed through skin (along with whatever other crap is on your skin). It would never be used, I think, for post-surgical adhesions in the abdomen, though it might be used by some on the other sort of fascia "adhesions" non-surgeons sometimes talk about. It certainly can work as a local pain killer, but there are plenty of issues (and drug interactions) with it. I'd be astonished if it did anything for strictures.

My only experience with it is that bone marrow transplants use it in the marrow being transplanted so the blood cells don't crystallize. This causes the patient to have that DMSO breath (always smelled like creamed corn to me; some say garlic). Never even heard of it for the use you're saying. Interesting.
