[br]Support hose can help, but it really differs patietn to patient. I do recommend against getting the store brand ones. Idealy they should be fitted for you specifically by a medical professional. That will make sure that the pressure is in the right place, particulaly since people are different sizes and the condition differs from patient to patient. You also need to replace them regularly because otherwise they'll lose their level of compression and become less effective. [br]

I have read the wearing of support stockings are very beneficial in alleviating varicose vein symptoms. The compression and fit must be right for you. I also have read that support stockings used for varicose veins should never be higher than two inches above the knee. I wear them to ease the discomfort of chronic venous insufficiency and have experienced very good results.

I have had vein stripping done when I was 21. There is a lot of scarring and a long recovery time.(don't plan on wearing a bikini after this)I didn't have any swelling. I suggest the sclerotherapy if possible.
