Such a substance was already developed at the beginning of the twentieth century to combat syphilis. His name is sulfozin. It is a suspension of sulfur in oil, usually peach or olive oil. When administered intramuscularly to a person, this substance, in addition to an increase in temperature, causes severe muscle pain, immobility and even tissue necrosis, as a result of which sulfozine was recognized as ineffective and dangerous. However, these properties have made it popular as a punitive tool for political dissidents and the pacification of violent mental patients. It is worth noting that this use of this substance was practiced mainly in the USSR. In modern Russia, sulfozine is still used in psychiatric hospitals, but to a limited extent.
