Contact Venom

A poison that is absorbed through the skin. (Read the full article)

"Laboratory 12 in KGB Department Viktor, also known as "the kamera" or "the chamber," ready did have this. Thence it proliferated to both the Bulgarian and the East German Secret Police (the Stasi). It is probably dimethyl sulfoxide to aid in absorption through the skin, plus something to do the actual killing. The Russians used to make it gelatinous. It was used by Bruce Willis' character in the 1997 remake "The Jackal.""

"Contact poison is mentioned in the AD&D Dungeon Master's Guide (1979, p. 20). "The Invasion", a 1966 Gilligan's Island episode, has a dream sequence in which Ginger's character uses poison lipstick."

"This also exists - DMSO (DiMethyl SulfOxide) has long been known for it's carrier properties "DMSO frequently causes a garlic-like body odor and taste in the mouth. Other reported side effects include stomach upset, sensitivity to light, visual disturbances, and headache. Skin irritation can develop at the site where DMSO is applied topically. Only highly purified, properly diluted DMSO should be used and the skin site and applying hand should be thoroughly cleaned before application, because the solvent properties of DMSO allow contaminants to be absorbed through the skin and transported into the bloodstream." - Mix a poison with DMSO and it will be administered by contact.

"Hell, this might actually be what you mentioned, I am a little rusty on name brands anymore. But various plant killers such as "Black Leaf FortyZ" contain a sufficent amount of nicotine sulfate to absord through the skin (or shoved though). The same thing can be done with cigarettes and chewing tobocacco, you merely have to rememberr bacisc chemistry. You know, the part where they teach you how to extract contents in a purified form. Most schools taught the technique by extracting wood alchohol, if that doesn't help does mentioning you need to know the boiling point of the material help? Nicotine really is, honest to God, one of the most dangerous poisins when used in oure form (or near pure such as our nicotine sulfate), this is a standard technique taught to many specialized military and security personel. Only a few other are usually taught at the basic level since it is so easy to get and use. The other one is a chemical compound which causes heart attack symtoms and will kill a person with a bad heart. Just gotto know your target, and best yet, you use a water squirt pistol to the face (it must hit the nose and eye region), usually no autopsy because they "obviously" were very angry over the tasteless joke and and hand a heart attack, better make sure he has a recorded heart problem though. (I am really not a maniacal killer, at least not yet;) I hope this info does not offend, I did leave out the heart chemicals afterall didn't I?"
