Hirudoid Cream is a type of ointment that can be used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with bruises and inflamed veins.
Hirudoid Creams and Gels both contain Heparinoid as an active ingredient, which is absorbed through the skin. This works by dissolving and reducing small blood clots and bruising. It improves the circulation around the area of concern through superficial veins under the skin and promotes healing. Heparinoid can also reduce pain and discomfort.
Hirudoid Cream can be used to treat bruising and haematoma (blood clots) as it works by improving the circulation after bruising or soft tissue injuries. It can also be used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with superficial thrombophlebitis (vein inflammation).
