Is it safe to use arnica cream?
Arnica cream or arnica gel is a safe and effective option to deal with bruises and pain. Make sure not to apply arnica cream to any open areas of skin and rather let them start to heal up before starting to apply arnica to deal with the surrounding bruising. As with any skin care product, discontinue use if irritation, redness, swelling, or hive-like rash occur. Allergic contact dermatitis to any skin product can occur but it is rare.
