Works to minimize bruising!
I used this pain relief lotion after having outpatient surgery to help with bruising from my IVs. The poor nurse had to stick me twice to find a good vein for my IV. I bruise VERY easily, so when I got home, I started applying this lotion to my two IV spots three times a day. I NEVER bruised in those areas, nor did I feel any residual pain from the needles. The lotion is a little greasy, so I only used a small amount and rubbed it in to avoid getting it on my clothes or furniture. I’m very pleased with the results!
