General Information

Hirudoid Cream 40g treats bruises, sprains, swelling and scars.

Hirudoid Cream is for bruises, sprains and swelling, the treatment of scars and various inflammatory conditions of the veins requiring medical supervision. Hirudoid is used to treat accidental or surgical injuries such as contusions, sprains and haematomas. For the treatment of scars, Hirudoid assists with loosening scar tissue and the improvement of scars due to injury and surgery. Hirudoid speeds up the healing of bruises, approximately halving healing time.*

* In one study of 10 healthy volunteers, the time it took for 50% of the bruise to be absorbed was 2.1 days for Hirudoid and 4 days for the inactive cream. Larsson B, et al. Thromb Haemost 1985;53(3):343-5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hirudoid Cream I have some nerve damage in my legs and had a fall because of this. The fall caused me some very painful bruising particularly around the rib area. Hirudoid cream was recommended to me and I was amazed. Within a week the bruises were gone making it much easier to breathe without pain. Highly recommend this cream to anyone with bruising and/or swelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bruises gone!!! I love this. Being older I bruise easy at the slightest bump. This helps the bruise to disappear much faster.
