Varicose Veins is a very serious condition that affects millions of people around the world. A deep purple, bulging, pooling of blood in your legs can be a sign of many many things, some of which are not serious, while others are potentially life threatening. Varicose Veins affects the legs in both women and men. Varicose vein symptoms vary depending on the severity of the condition. In some cases, the symptoms may be so mild that they go undetected.
Most people who have had a varicose vein treatment choose to use compression stockings and hosiery to manage the discomfort and pain they feel with the condition. Compression stockings are specially designed garments worn underneath your clothing to hold the circulation in your legs. Compression hosiery will provide some relief from the itching and burning that occurs. You should wear compression hosiery and compression stocking every day and for the period prescribed by our doctor. Your doctor will let you know how long the stockings should be worn, as well as what type of compression hosiery you should use.
