using a topical arnika gel will help heal the swelling quicker, you can also put cold compresses a few times a day

Arnica Gel

Dear patient; The answer is yes -as long as there are no open sores. Consider the ortal pills. In my opinion they work even better.

Arnica can help, but make sure you don't have any wounds as this can increase your risk of infection.
