Thanks for submitting the question.

I assume you are talking about the use of DMSO i.e. Dimethyl Sulfoxide in treatment of Herpes Simplex.
The only approved use of DMSO by FDA is called as RIMSO 50 and is used for the treatment of Interstitial Cystitis.

FDA has not approved the use of DMSO for the treatment of Herpes.

DMSO is a byproduct of Paper manufacturing process.

There are very effective medications called anti-viral medicines available, please consult your family doctor for a prescription for the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further medicines.

Wishing your father a speedy recovery.
