I bruise easily, and participate in a sport in which I can get banged up. My family doc recommended I try arnica gel on my bruises. This particular gel, when I applied it twice daily, reduced the severity of my bruises as well as the length of time I wore the marks. One time, last year, I had a particularly bad bruise, and another friend happened to have a tube of the arnica pellets. My results were amazing! I am definitely a skeptic about homeopathy, but this stuff works like a miracle!
