What is Thrombophob Gel (Heparin Sodium) used for?

How should I use Thrombophob Gel (Heparin Sodium)?

To apply the medicine rinse the area being treated to remove any dirt or loose skin, apply a small amount of gel, gently massage it into the skin, and leave the area uncovered allowing any excess medicine to evaporate. Thoroughly wash your hands after each application to prevent the gel from contacting any mucous membranes or areas of skin not being treated.
