Hello.. Well we need a detailed history as to see the cause of varicosity...now the best thing you can do is wear stockings which will help in relief of symptoms as well as control it to an extent...do not neglect them as it can lead to ulcers... if its severe you can go for procedures like stripping of veins...consult a gen surgeon and get examined first
