Heparin ointment for varicose veins

Varicose veins are a disease of human veins, their persistent expansion and protrusion. As a rule, it forms in the human limbs, in the legs (where blood flow is physiologically slowed down). The causes of varicose veins are slagging in the body, toxic deposits in the blood vessels and liver, changes in the composition of the blood, and its thickening. Hence, the main treatment for varicose veins is cleansing the body of toxins and dissolving blood clots.

General measures to improve liver function and normalize blood flow can be supplemented with local treatment. To do this, it is necessary to apply absorbable ointment to the venous protrusions. This therapy reduces bulging veins and reduces discomfort.

Heparin can be used as an inexpensive absorbable cream. The ointment is applied to areas where the disease has spread - spider veins and dilated veins. In this case, the ointment can be rubbed in or applied as a compress. The composition is slowly absorbed through the skin into the blood and has a therapeutic effect - it accelerates local blood flow and dissolves blood clots.

Heparin ointment for blood clots is an effective and affordable local treatment. It is applied twice a day for two weeks. At the same time, you should not massage or actively rub the composition. It should be applied with minimal pressure, or even better, fixed in the form of a compress.

Heparin treatment does not solve the main problem (liver dysfunction and congestion in the systemic blood flow), but will improve the condition of diseased vessels (reduces their stretching and protrusion, reduces the number of clots and deposits). Reviews confirm that heparin ointment treats inflammation and removes vascular networks and spider veins. It also reduces venous protrusions and hemorrhoids.

Instructions for use of Heparin ointment

According to the instructions for Heparin ointment, it is applied to the affected areas two or three times a day (0.5-1 g per area with a diameter of 3-5 cm), gently rubbing into the skin. The course of treatment usually lasts until the inflammatory processes disappear, usually 3-7 days.

Heparin ointment for hemorrhoids is applied to rectal tampons or bandages (usually made of calico fabric), which are then inserted into the anus or applied to the hemorrhoids, respectively (the bandages must be fixed after application).

Heparin ointment is used for hemorrhoids every day, and the course of treatment lasts until the painful symptoms disappear - usually no more than 3-14 days.

Interaction with other drugs

It is not recommended to use heparin ointment simultaneously with medications for topical use, for example, with products that contain tetracycline, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid, and anticoagulants. The use of heparin ointment may increase prothrombin time in patients using oral anticoagulants.

The effect of heparin ointment is enhanced by anticoagulants, acetylsalicylic acid and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The effectiveness of heparin ointment is weakened by digitalis preparations, tetracyclines, nicotine, and antihistamines. It is not recommended to drink alcohol during the treatment course.

Heparin ointment for hemorrhoids

Ointment for hemorrhoids is used in case of thrombosis of cavernous formations. With pathology, the veins cannot cope with blood outflow due to low tone - stagnation is observed in certain areas, the blood thickens, and blood clots form.

If you treat hemorrhoids with heparin ointment, you can count on a fairly prompt effect: as the blood thins, the blood clots begin to dissolve.

For internal nodes, tampons with medicine help relieve inflammation, pain and eliminate discomfort in the local area. If the patient has external hemorrhoids, the ointment is applied directly to the nodes.

Selection and purchase of ointment

To begin, select a manufacturer. You can focus on the price and size of the tube offered by the pharmaceutical company.

Most companies offer a 25 g tube. In such a package you can buy products from Nizhpharm, BELMEDPREPRATY, Altaivitamins.


Are you allergic to heparin? You can be treated with other drugs of similar effect:

  • Hirudoven and Troxevasin improve lymph outflow and eliminate the symptoms of varicose veins;
  • Trombless will relieve swelling and help recover from injury or bruise;
  • Lyoton 1000 will be an excellent prevention of deep vein thrombosis;
  • Badyagi powder will relieve bruises and speed up wound healing.

Instructions for use

The ointment is applied in small portions to the affected areas and rubbed in a little. Used for 7 days 2-3 times a day. Only the doctor prescribes an additional period of treatment if the inflammation does not go away.

They are applied directly to the inflammation and fixed. The ointment is used daily for a course of 3 days to 2 weeks. To treat internal inflammation, tampons are soaked in ointment and inserted internally. For ulcers, only the skin around the open wound is lubricated with the drug.

Heparin ointment is recommended for use when determining the diagnosis and carefully studying the official instructions. This will prevent possible worsening of the existing disease.

How to use Heparin ointment correctly

The ointment is for external use only. For thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins, the product is applied to problem areas of the skin in a thin layer, 1 to 3 times a day, gently rubbing. One gram of cream is enough to treat an area of ​​skin with a diameter of up to 5 cm. The course of therapy is determined by the doctor, depends on the characteristics of the disease and usually ranges from 3 days to 1 week.

Therapy for external hemorrhoids is carried out by applying the ointment directly to the painful areas, fixing the product with a sterile bandage. Rectal administration of the drug using tampons soaked in heparin ointment is also used. Frequency of use – 2-3 times a day.

The course of treatment is carried out until the inflammatory phenomena completely disappear, from 3 days to 2 weeks. For hemorrhoids in pregnant women and after childbirth, the ointment can be used only after the approval of the attending physician.

Places of bruises, hematomas and bruises are lubricated with the composition 1-2 times a day until they disappear completely.

Resorption of subcutaneous infiltrates is carried out in the same way. Thanks to the anticoagulant effect, subcutaneous blood clots dissolve, pain is relieved, and the condition of capillary vessels improves.


Local application (application to the skin) leads to the slow release of heparin from the dosage form and absorption into the skin at the site of application. The active substance inhibits platelet aggregation (sticking together) and disrupts thrombin synthesis. This leads to the prevention of the formation of blood clots on the inner wall of blood vessels. Heparin leads to activation of the fibrinolytic component of the blood coagulation system, which causes the dissolution of blood clots and normalization of blood flow through the affected vessels. The chemical reduces the inflammatory response of tissues by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins.

Nicotinic acid ester reflexively dilates superficially located vessels, which promotes better absorption of heparin ointment and penetration of the drug through the skin barrier into the tissue. Benzocaine has an analgesic effect in the area where the ointment is applied and increases the effectiveness and tolerability of local therapy.

General information about the ointment

The product is white in color and practically odorless. The ointment is homogeneous and thick in consistency - it does not spread when applied, but is easily distributed over the skin and absorbed.

Sold without an applicator and applied with clean hands to cleansed skin at the site of injury, wound, hematoma. When applied, it does not cause any discomfort or burning sensation; on the contrary, the area is numbed and softened.


The main work in the cream is performed by sodium heparin - a powder that is obtained from the internal organs of cattle. Heparin thins the blood and prevents platelets from sticking together, that is, it prevents the formation of blood clots and blockage of veins.

But this is not the only powerful substance. Contains benzocaine and benzyl nicotinate. The first component anesthetizes the site of application, and the second expands the blood vessels of the skin and allows the medicine to penetrate inside faster.


In 2020, a 25 g tube of heparin ointment can be bought for 47-80 rubles. The price depends on the place of purchase and the manufacturer.

For example, a product can be bought for 50 rubles, but an ointment from Tatkhimfarmpreparaty with exactly the same active substance in its composition (sodium heparin) will cost 10 times more.

Heparin ointment: indications for treatment

Treatment with heparin ointment is necessary when local clots form in the superficial veins. Such processes occur with thrombotic lesions ( varicose veins, thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, phlebitis

). Also, accelerating blood flow promotes healing of wounds on the extremities. The blood supply to the feet and palms is usually slow compared to the general blood flow. Therefore, tissue regeneration in them occurs more slowly.

Superficial application of heparin accelerates local blood flow in the treatment area. Unlike systemic therapy (intravenous injections), it does not affect the entire body. The ointment acts in a limited area, where it thins the blood and improves blood supply and tissue nutrition.

Let's take a closer look at what heparin ointment helps with when used externally.

Heparin ointment where to store

Heparin ointment is an inexpensive product that, according to the instructions, resolves blood clots and reduces bruising. It is used for hemorrhoids and bags under the eyes, for swelling and varicose veins. How does the drug work, and is it always possible to use heparin ointment?

Heparin to reduce blood clotting

The main substance in the ointment is heparin. It is an anticoagulant

and provides the main effect - reduces the number of blood clots and removes congestion. Following the normalization of blood flow, swelling decreases and inflammation decreases. This is a chemical analogue of natural hirudin, a substance that provides the main therapeutic effect in hirudotherapy (treatment with leeches).

Note: anticoagulants are substances that reduce the number of blood clots and thereby reduce blood clotting. They inhibit fibrin synthesis, which in turn slows down the formation of fibrin threads - the structural basis of blood clots. They also activate the protein antithrombin, which counteracts the formation of clots and thrombosis of blood vessels.

Now let's look at how a blood clot forms and how does heparin work?

A blood clot in a person is formed when platelets stick together. A colony of glued platelets is impregnated with insoluble fibrin (it entangles it in the form of threads). From the moment of impregnation, the blood clot becomes hard and becomes the cause of partial or complete blockage of the vascular lumen.

Heparin stops fibrin protein synthesis . It is called a direct anticoagulant, it acts directly on the coagulation system, and the effect of its use appears quickly (indirect coagulants act indirectly and slowly, they inhibit the synthesis of vitamin K, necessary for blood clotting).

The effect of heparin is manifested in the form of slowing blood flow and dissolving blood clots . It forms within 20 minutes and lasts for 8 hours after applying the ointment. After the specified time, the blood flow speed returns to its previous level, but the antithrombotic effect remains.

The action of heparin differs from the action of other anticoagulants in the following:

  • Heparin is activated only in the presence of antithrombin, which means that it thins only thickened blood, manifests its effect in the presence of clots and blood clots, and does not cause changes in normal healthy blood flow.
  • Heparin is not a fibrinolytic (does not dissolve formed blood clots), but it inhibits their growth and reduces their size due to the activation of fibrinolytic enzymes, which dissolve existing blood clots. That is, it stimulates the body’s own response to combat congestion.
  • Heparin exhibits its effect even in small doses and local (subcutaneous) administration . This makes it possible to use it topically, as well as to prevent thrombosis of the saphenous veins.

In addition to heparin in the ointment base ( vaseline, glycerin, peach oil

) components have been added that complement the action of the main substance.
This is an anesthesin ( benzocaine
), benzylbenzocaine. What are they doing:

  • Benzyl nicotinate is an antispasmodic, it dilates blood vessels and increases the amount of heparin that is absorbed into the blood.
  • Benzocaine - acts as an anesthetic (pain reliever). Thanks to it, a person’s well-being improves immediately after applying the drug.

Heparin ointment is one of the most inexpensive means for reducing blood clots and thinning the blood. Its cost in pharmacies does not exceed 100 rubles, and the total price of treatment consists of the cost of several tubes of the drug.
