Sounds like a seriously bad idea to me.  At the vet teaching hospital, DMSO
only goes IV highly diluted in saline or normosol, hydrogen peroxide is
extremely cytotoxic and could cause some really nasty cellulitis, and
dextrose in sufficient quantities is one of the ways
horse-insurance-killers-for-hire induce acute laminitis in over-insured
horses.  Of course, quantity is everything, but boy, you sure wouldn't catch
me putting those things into a vein lightly.  Not into a horse I liked (or
even one I didn't like).

There was undoubtedly something else going on systemically, like a viral
infection, and the immune system took care of it in due course.  None of
those things you mentioned would do a darn thing for a snotty nose.

 It just seems like such a hocus pocus cure

Sounds really hocus pocus to me too, Drin, and not nearly as innocuous as
most you hear about.  This one is seriously scary.
