Will Lymphoderm help prevent lymphedema?
No, but it will help manage lymphedema. Lymphedema is caused by an obstruction or interruption of the lymphatic vessel system. Minor cuts, insect bites or stings will increase the risk of infection which may increase inflammation and further swelling in the limb. Lymphoderm contains antiseptic and disinfectant properties plus natural insect repellant which helps provide maximum protection.
