Vericose Vein Help and Advice

Recommended Posts

Varicose vein are formed by the dilation of a small group of blood vessels located close to the surface of the skin. Although they can appear anywhere on the body, varicose veins are most commonly found on the face and legs. They usually pose no health hazard but may produce a dull aching in the legs after prolonged standing.
  • Don't stand or sit for long periods. To relieve your discomfort, take a break and walk around.
  • When sitting, try to keep your legs raised above the level of your chest whenever possible. At home, rest your feet on a foot stool or hassock or sit in a reclining chair. Use pillows to elevate your legs even more.
  • Wear strong support hose to help relieve some discomfort. These are available in most pharmacies. For best results, put them on before getting out of bed in the morning.
  • Consider medical treatment. Some patients opt for surgical removal of varicose veins, a procedure that may require hospitalization. Others choose a less radical (but in many cases, less effective) solution, in which a doctor injects chemicals into varicose veins that cause them to mat together and stop carrying blood. Recovery for both procedures takes several weeks.
