This drug was first prescribed to me by a surgeon when I had complications after the laser removal of a conventional mole. I did not think that I would be so pleasantly surprised, because the wound healed very quickly (although a small scar still remained). The second time she used it after suturing in the hospital. She asked the doctor whether it was possible or not, to which she received an affirmative answer. I helped quickly - after 6 days I was able to sit quietly without experiencing discomfort or pain. Now "Actovegin" is always in my personal first aid kit. Svetlana M., 29 years old, Anapa

I can only share enthusiastic reviews about the drug Actovegin. My five-year-old daughter at the rink cut her arm with skates. Right between the fingers. The wound was very deep. In the emergency room she was quickly treated and released home, advising to buy this ointment, which I did. The texture of the ointment is pleasant, does not stick and does not stink. They worked on the wound regularly, as a result - complete healing within two weeks, although I was very afraid that the scars would remain. I advise everyone who faced the same problem.
