Bumps and bruises are fairly common injuries that a person can receive while at work, on vacation, while visiting or at home. They can have varying degrees of severity and localization. As a rule, such injuries are accompanied by severe pain, tissue edema, bumps and bruises. The first aid for these injuries is an ointment for bruises. The agent acts directly at the site of tissue damage and is an excellent addition to the main therapy or is used alone.

Warming ointments may contain red pepper, leech extract, bee venom, viper venom, camphor, essential oils.
Homeopathic ointments. These are funds made in a special way using a special technology. Ointments of this group do not have a quick effect, since they contain very small amounts of active ingredients, but they have a cumulative effect and can be used in conjunction with other means.
A large group of drugs for the treatment of bruises are combined ointments that include several active components and provide a complex effect on tissues. Such products may contain a combination of NSAIDs and absorbents.

Depending on the intensity of the pain syndrome and other manifestations of bruises, the doctor decides on the appointment of a specific external agent (ointment, gel, cream) and the need to combine it with oral forms of drugs. Complex treatment gives faster results and recovery is faster.
