Varicose Veins
Im noticing horrible veins on my legs and ankles, how can I get rid of this. Im only 21yrs old and it doesnt look nice. How did I get this anyway? Is it from sitting for so long each day?
The most important question, how can I get rid of it? Is there creams and what works the best.

Tracy, Thrombophob® may work for the small ones, but the big ones will probably require surgery. The best would be to show them to your doctor (or even better, a surgeon) and ask him for his opinion. Good luck.
