European rosaceans unable to fly right now might temper their frustration with the thought that the subtle atmospheric changes caused by the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull might just be helping their symptoms.

The volcanic stuff being spewed into the air is rich in sulphurous materials. Sulphur, of course, is a well established rosacea topical. Now, you may be sure that this is no desperate effort to make that which is topical, relevant: rosaceans have often reported considerable improvement when spending time at the seaside. Sulphurous compounds are especially abundant in the air about the coast. Intriguingly, one of these – dimethyl sulphate – is a precursor to DMSO, a penetration enhancer.
