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.

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

Arnica for swelling

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