Always a had a very small prominent vein on leg but it has now become a full blown hideoous varicos vein and it looks grim. I was hoping post pregnancy it would improve a bit but it hasn't.

Would fake tan help conceal it? or am I destined to spend the rest of my summers in linen trousers sad

ifjust one bit, what about sclerotherapy?

What's that?? Do you need to go private?

It's quite large goes all the way up my leg

not sure then, it's an injection that closes off the bit of vein thats varicosed. could also have an op to have it "stripped", might be ok on nhs, ask gp first,

I might ask then - I've got one. Is it free?

yes the nhs will do it

go asap as the waiting lists are usually quite long

even if it doesn't hurt or anything?

I have one that has kind of popped if you know what I mean. Can I still have it stripped? My leg looks like an 80 year old's.

Ta NP.

Long story - had no internet for 3 months after trying to change to broadband with aol. Eventually had to go with BT just so as I could get the line up and running (pitfalls of a brand new house).
