Hi, I'm 17 weeks pg and just came out of hospital. I had a drip fitted in my hand which now that is gone is very bruised.
Can I take arnica to try to help the bruising?
Many thanks for your advices.

I had a bad bruise (am on baby aspirin and bruise like fury) and asked in Boots: they showed me the information that comes in the box and it says "no, unless perscribed by your doctor"... so, for me, the answer was no.
