Medication To Deal With Facial Bruises After An Accident?
Want to ask, is the use of a Trombopop ointment for a wound falling from a motorbike right? The wound on the cheek and knee area?
Hello Fima, Thank you for the question.
In general, bruises occur due to collisions on certain body parts. This collision can cause damage to blood vessels on the surface of the skin so that blood can leak and accumulate under the skin. This collection of blood under the skin appears as reddish, bluish, purple, or blackish areas. You can handle light bruises at home. It is recommended that you do an ice pack for the first 48-72 hours after a collision. The purpose of this ice pack is to shrink the blood vessels so that the amount of blood that comes out is not much and can even stop. You can do ice packs for 10-15 minutes and repeat 4-6 times a day. After 48-72 hours, you can use warm compresses in the area with the aim to dilate blood vessels so that the blood seepage out can be quickly absorbed by the body.
Thrombophob is a gel that contains heparin, which is a drug that works to thin the blood. In the first 48-72 hours after the collision occurs usually blood can still seep so that the use of thrombophob is not suitable for this time. This drug can be used on bruises after 2-3 days of collision. The goal is to wait until the blood seepage stops and thin the blood collected under the skin so it does not clot. You can combine the use of this gel with a warm compress. If the bruise does not improve for more than 2 weeks or if you experience severe pain in the bruise, please consult your doctor immediately for further examination and treatment.
Hope this helps.
