I hope this information helps you decide what to use. This is not a complete list of all possible treatment options, and there are many other conditions for which treatment might be helpful. Some of these are more obvious than others, and are not covered on this site. I have been working with my health insurance company to try to make these products available. We are currently working to get them available for all patients in the United States. For details, click here.
Varicose Veins Symptoms and Diagnosis The most common cause of varicose veins is a viral infection. This is usually caused by the herpes simplex virus. If this virus is not treated correctly, the patient can suffer from varicose veins and gangrene (hardening of the vein). These types of varicose veins can lead to aneurysms, and they can lead to life-threatening complications if untreated. If you suspect that you have varicose veins, get your blood work checked to make sure you are healthy, or go to your doctor to get checked. There are a few treatments available for this condition. The most common is a daily IV infusion of acyclovir. If you are over 50 and have varicose veins, you can be treated with a daily dose of acyclovir.
