So I believe pentox can certainly help in combination with other treatments, but let's be honest, when you take an oral medication it gets dispersed all throughout the body. With that said, why do you guys think a topical pentox cream has not yet been made. If it does, I certainly have not found it.

The molecular weight of pentox is 278.31 g/mol, which is well under the 500 rule to pass through skin.

What do you guys think? Is there any way to compound a cream ourselves?

Maxster,

Creams typically don't work because they won't penetrate deep enough. Many of us, me included, have done the DMSO combo route and found it to be ineffective. Xiaflex, however, when injected into the plaque breaks up the plaque from the inside of the plaque.

I have to agree, creams or gels seem ineffective, remember the hope of H-100 topical treatment, what happened??.................https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26700214

Nothing  :(

@Paolo: dr Levine told me H-100 was very promising but they don't have H-100 available from any supplier... or something to that tune...

And there's the recent study w diclofenac

it was linked below by Paolo. Then I mentioned that when I mentioned that study to dr Levine (one of the two authors!!!), dr Levine said that H-100 is no longer available...

I have at last received a courteous e-mail from Harold Hoium @ Hybrid Medical saying that to 'monitor the website for updates and suggest the same to your urologist'.

There is a doctor in Oregon who prescribes a compounded cream which consists of pentox, iodine, DMSO, verapamil, and vitamin E.

A member here posted about it. He got significant improvement out of the cream.

They are everywhere.

You just need a doctor to write what he wants in a cream.
