    Although homeopathic substances listed in this article are generally not known to cause serious side effects, their effectiveness has not been demonstrated by scientific research. Consumers should check labels carefully, since a homeopathic product that is not diluted, or not diluted enough, may contain ingredients that cause allergic reactions, side effects, or interactions. It is always advisable to discuss any new treatment program with your healthcare practitioner.

    For more information, see Homeopathy FAQs, "What Is Homeopathy?," and “Using Homeopathy with Professional Guidance” in Homeopathic Medicine.

    A bruise is formed when blood leaks out the blood vessels into the surrounding tissue, usually after a blow or a trauma, but sometimes spontaneously. Some medicines, such as blood thinners, increase the tendency towards bruising. Large bruises are usually swollen and painful.

    Frequent or large bruises can be the sign of a more serious condition and need to be addressed by a physician.
