What is Hirudoid Cream?
Hirudoid Cream is used to accelerate the healing process of bruises, making them vanish faster. This review will inform customers of the product and how it works. Furthermore, it will serve to help customers decide whether or not this product is suitable for their needs. The manufacturers of Hirudoid Cream claim their product has many more functions other than healing bruises, such as anti-inflammatory effects on veins, reduced healing time on sprains, and scar treatment. The product is available in a small 40g tube and is easy to use: one simply has to massage the cream into the affected area.
Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) naturally occurs in the body to help heal bruises. Many scar healing creams contain this ingredient and the effectiveness of the cream depends on how well this ingredient is absorbed into the skin. In Hirudoid, many doctors have confirmed that the MPS in the cream is absorbed lot faster than in other creams currently available.

Two to six inches of the cream should be massaged gently into the affected area. The cream can be applied up to four times a day. This number should not be exceeded. If the area is too tender to touch, the cream can be massaged into the skin surrounding the affected area. Hirudoid can also be used by children.
The product is sold only through retailers, so prices may vary. The average price is $17 for a 40g tube of the cream. No deals or subscription services could be found.
Possible Side Effects
The instructions warn customers to stop using the cream after the expiry date. The leaflet also mentions that, on very rare occasions, some customers have been known to get a rash from the cream. If this occurs, discontinue use of the cream immediately and inform your doctor. If any further concerns arise, consult a professional before using the cream.
The manufacturer, unfortunately, offers no guarantee on the product. This raises concerns about how well the product functions. Furthermore, there is a lack of customer reviews for the product and, the few that exist, claim that the product did not aid the healing of their bruises, varicose veins or scars in any shape or form.
The Bottom Line
Hirudoid Cream is an okay product that may be useful to some customers looking for a long-term product they can apply to veins. Customers looking for a quick solution to hide bruises, varicose veins or scars may find themselves disappointed by this product because of this. The amount of cream that needs to be applied to the area is also quite a lot. Additionally, there is no guarantee offered by the manufacturer on this product, so we recommend that you keep looking for a better product for your needs.
