What Is Hirudoid Forte?
Hirudoid contains Mucopolysaccharide polysulphate (MPS) which is similar to the body’s naturally occurring MPS found in the dermis layer of skin. The basic material for MPS – semisynthetic glycosaminoglycan is obtained from organic tissue, mammalian tracheal cartilage by depolymerization, then subsequent sulfatization.
Hirudoid Forte Cream is an anti-thrombotic and anti-inflammatory preparation for percutaneous treatment of inflammation of the veins such as superficial thrombophlebitis, varicose veins and swelling. It supports the prevention and remission of blood clots and haematomas. When applied to skin, it relieves pain, swelling and inflammation.

What Are Spider/Varicose Veins?
Spider veins are the smaller version of varicose veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin which is why they are more visible.
Varicose veins are mainly characterized by red, purple and blue blood vessels that are shaped like tree branches and spiderwebs with short jagged lines. These normally appear on the face and legs and can cover either a small or very large area of skin. Some potential causes for varicose veins includes:
- Chronic heart valve conditions, which are usually congenital
- Standing for a long period of time
- Pressure on the midsection of the body, especially the abdomen
- Obesity, which adds weight to the body and increases the pressure on the legs
