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).
Also known as Phlebitis or Superficial Thrombophlebitis, Vein Inflammation is a condition that happens when blood clots in the veins or the walls of your veins are damaged. There are many different causes of Vein Inflammation, such as:
If you are a smoker, overweight, taking contraception, hormone replacement therapy, pregnant, have cancer or have previously had a blood clot, you are also more likely to experience vein inflammation.

Not only did my order arrive quickly but so did the pain relief when I used the cream. Would recommend.
First time used
Certainly helped with bruising
this product has really worked and is helping ..
An excellent cream
This has been enormously helpful. I sustained a nasty cut to my lower leg with severe bruising. I was expecting healing to take a long time as it did after a similar injury a couple of years ago. This time I used Hirudoid Cream and I was very impressed at the rate of healing.
The items I ordered arrived quickly, were will packaged and I would recommend chemist direct and will continue to use.
Best trauma cream
This product is the best for getting bruises out and to heal quickly. Would not use any other.
