Foot neuroma treatment

I would like to treat a foot neuroma without injection (such as sclerosing).

I would like to use DMSO as the carrier agent. What active ingredient should I add to the DMSO to make it help the neuroma? Would something like arnica, capsaicin, or hydrocortisone be appropriate?

Thank you.

Re: Foot neuroma treatment

I think you will eventually feel the toe again it just takes time for the nerves to regenerate themselves again...

Re: Foot neuroma treatment

I had the surgery in April and have lost the feeling in my 2nd and 3rd toes. I was told that its permanent since the nerve that branches into those two toes was completly severed. My neuroma was very large so I did lose a large portion of the nerve. The Dr. told my husband right after the surgery that he had never seen one that large. I guess that was my fault for letting it go that long.

Also If anyone is comtemplating the surgery make sure to ask your Dr. what he does with the severed ends of the nerve. I've heard they should be tucked inside the muscle to lessen the chances for a stump neuroma occuring.
