Thrombophob Ointment


Overview

Introduction

Thrombophob Ointment is a combination of two medicines used to treat superficial thrombophlebitis (inflammation or swelling of a vein due to a blood clot). It helps to relieve pain and inflammation by speeding up the healing process.

Thrombophob Ointment is also used to treat bruises and hematoma (collection of blood under the skin). It speeds up the dissolution of the blood clot, decreasing the pain and swelling. It should be used in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. This medicine is for external use only. The affected area must be clean and dry before applying this medicine. Make sure to wash your hands before and after applying this medicine.

Thrombophob Ointment is generally safe to use with minimal or no side effects. However, slight irritation, burning sensation or redness may be experienced after applying this medicine over the affected area. This is usually temporary and resolves on its own. Please consult your doctor if it does not subside or persists for a longer duration. Avoid contact of this medicine with broken skin. If you get it in your eyes, mouth or broken skin, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

How Thrombophob Ointment works

Thrombophob Ointment is a combination of two medicines: Benzyl Nicotinate and Heparin. Benzyl Nicotinate is a vasodilator and Heparin is an anticoagulant. Together, they work by widening the blood vessels and dissolving/ preventing the formation of blood clots. This increases blood flow to the affected area thereby relieving the associated symptoms.
