What is Hirudoid Soft Ointment 0.3% for skin dryness, swelling, and pain (heparinoid)?

They act in the same way as heparin and affect heparin binding proteins through ionic interactions, hydrogen bonding, or both. Hirudoid Soft Ointment helps to moisturize the skin and to relieve dry skin symptoms. It also accelerates blood flow to the area, which reduces swelling or pain caused by blood circulation disorder.
