Varicose Veins
I have these tiny varicose veins on my ankle and I noticed a few on my legs, Im only 22yrs old and I need to do something about this. I dont stand alot but I have a desk job, could sitting all day be the prob?
What can I do to combat this and also how to get rid of it?
Is there creams or laser treatment and is it costly and effective?

Littlewing, it is usually associated with standing too long, but it’s not the only reason for spider veins. You can have them lasered or injected – a good dermatologist would be the best person to see about this. Good luck.
