Veins on legs as a teen? help.?
I am young (17) and I am having a terrible problem with the veins in my legs. My legs hurt me constantly and have been a recent problem within the last few months. My legs ache and I have trouble sitting or standing for long periods of time. My mom has them badly so I know it is genetic and I am wearing support stockings daily but one especially large vein has grown on the back of my right leg behind my knee. I feel very helpless and any advice would be very much appreciated. My mother says I cannot see the leg vein doctor because sclerotherapy should only be considered once I am older. Is this true or can sclerotherapy and vein stripping be done at any age? Any ideas? Thank you.
Don’t worry, just listen to your mom.
For the time being apply hot towel treatment to the affected area 5 to10 minutes, 2 to 3 times daily.
Massage the area with medicated gel/cream 2 to 3 times daily after the heat treatment.
The above will ease the pain and help blood circulation.
Your varicose vein may not disappear, but will not be too visible.
