my 93 y/o momma has severe varicouse veins they as Rajive said directics, prescription hosiery with compression levels according to your situation, sometimes when they are severe enough surgical intervention is required and I even had a friend at the hospital where I volunterred to have injections into the area where the vein is to make them dissolve. In my momma's case blood circulates down into the legs but does not return back up, there are exercises like (a friend suggested this in such a case) with shoes off moving the foot pretend you are writing the alphabet this forces the blood to better circulate upwards (can't take credit for that but since so many things have failed in my mommas case we are giving that a try. and as always have a conversation with you doctor about other ideas that fit your situation. I wish you the very best
