Forum Name: Clots & Anticoagulants
Question: Blood clot treatment
|reginaa - Wed Jun 02, 2004 9:01 am||
My boyfriend has some blood clots in his scrotum area. He suspects they were caused by wearing too tight underwear for some time, since he has also been gaining weights. He has now changed his underwear size, and no more clots seem to appear. However, I wonder if there's anything he can do to treat the existing clots. I know of a medication called Hirudoid. Will it help? Are there other medications, and will he need any prescription?

i don't think that there will be any harm in trying hirudoid. It is said to accelerate healing time by 50%.
Another alternative is to use warm compresses three times a day.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
