Additional internal treatment as prescribed by a doctor
When a concrete slab slipped, a male doctor colleague sustained a dislocated finger tip fracture with a subungual hematoma, which had to be relieved by puncture.
It was first treated with arnica ointment (Wala, combined with formica and symphytum), without any noticeable improvement. Then arnica 30% ointment (Weleda) was tried, with an immediate and lasting reduction in pain, as well as reduced swelling in the days that followed.
