How Dolophob Gel works

Dolophob Gel is a combination of two medicines: Heparin and Diclofenac which relieve thrombophlebitis. Heparin is an anticoagulant that prevents the formation of harmful blood clots. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
