Hi..... Avoid prolonged standing or sitting still. Try to put your feet up frequently sit or lie down and raise the feet above the level of your hips. You can, use extra pillows under your feet on a bed or footrest This helps to reduce blood pooling in the veins. Use a moisturising cream or ointment to protect the skin in the affected area if it is dry, flaky or itchy..... Consult surgeon for further treatment......
