Dietary Changes and High Fiber Diet: A flavinoid rich diet including berries, green teas can reduce inflammation and pain. A high fiber diet can increase abdominal pressure and may be helpful for varicose veins. Make sure to drink plenty of water with your high fiber diet.
Anti-inflammatory Medications are helpful to reduce pain and inflammation, but check with your doctor first to make sure you don’t’ have contraindications to using them. Ibupfren and Advil are common oral anti-inflammatory medications. There are also anti-inflammatory cream or gels that can be applied topically to the painful veins, such as Voltaren gel.
Ice Packs and heating pads can be applied to tender veins. Ice packs and heating pads can be used in an alternating manner.
