The effect of the drug was tested after consulting a mammologist who prescribed Dimexide along with hormonal drugs for the treatment of mastopathy. The doctor explained that in the absence of an effect, it would be necessary to remove the nodules with an operation. The solution was applied for 10 days for half an hour. The following diagnostics showed that the resorption of the seals began. In my case, the disease is treatable, I hope that everything will pass without the help of a surgeon. Vika, Krasnodar

On the steps, she sprained her leg strongly, after a short time the joint swelled, and it was impossible to walk. At home, the mother-in-law (a nurse by profession) bought Dimexide and an elastic bandage, after which she prepared a solution, applied a compress for half an hour, and rewound her leg with a bandage. Until the next day, the joint was sick. After the procedure, on the second day, the pain decreased markedly, by the third day the swelling began to go, and the fourth compress was decided not to do. I think recovery would have been noticeable without medication. Yaroslav, Borisoglebsk
