Overview

Introduction

Thrombophob Gel is an anticoagulant which prevents clotting of blood. It is applied on the skin for the treatment of post-injection superficial thrombophlebitis (inflammation of a vein due to a blood clot). It speeds up the resolution of the blood clot, decreasing the pain and swelling.

Thrombophob Gel may also be used for treating extensive superficial bruises. It should be used  as advised by your doctor. This medicine is meant for external use only. It should be applied only to the affected area of the skin as per the dosage and schedule prescribed by your doctor. In order to get the most benefit, apply it regularly and preferably at the same time each day. Do not use larger amounts or apply it more often or for a longer duration than directed. This will only increase the risk of side effects.

Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the medicine in these areas. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it. Local side effect like rashes may be seen after application. This is usually temporary and resolve quickly. Consult doctor if it bothers you or if your condition doesn't improve.
