The Bottom Line

I tested this product on a bruise I had recently gotten and although I couldn't really tell if it healed faster (I didn't have another bruise to compare it to), I can say that it made the area feel better. The cooling effect along with the pain relief did help immensely. Considering that most cheerleaders get bruises from time to time, I'd recommend keeping a tube of BruiseMD in your gym bag and in any first aid kit you keep for your program.

Pros

  • Greaseless, quick drying, pleasant smelling, cooling gel
  • Relieves pain, stiffness, inflamation and accelerates healing of bruises
  • Homeopathic - contains Arnica
  • Created by a doctor
  • Can be purchased online

Cons

  • A bit pricey at $12.95 for 2 ounces but a little goes a long way

Guide Review - BruiseMD Cooling Gel

BruiseMD has a variety of different products to help accelerate the healing of bruises along with relieving pain, soreness and inflammation. I used the BruiseMD cooling gel (which contains Arnica) and found the product worked as advertised. It was pleasant smelling, had a great cooling effect and did relieve the pain and soreness at the site of my bruise. BruiseMD products are available online and do not require a prescription. I have to note that I am not a doctor nor do I have any medical training. My opinion of the BruiseMD products is based solely on my personal experience with them. You should always consult a heath care professional before you start any medication or treatment.
