You may be having varicose veins, please consult a general surgeon, in the initial stages elastic stockings help but if the symptoms worsen surgery may be needed.

Hi flora
puffy veins as u call them,may indicate something more to it than what meets the eye,. most commonly they turn out to be varicose veins. avoid standing long at your work place or your house,as it may aggravate the problem,use stockings. dont forget to consult your surgeon at the earliest.

Hello,
Thanks for writing to us.
The least invasive and first course of action for any type of varicose veins should be compression stockings.
surgical stripping has been the treatment option for the relief of varicose veins.
Endovenous Laser Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed in the doctor's office with local anaesthetic.
Sclerotherapy is a technique whereby the patient is injected with a salt solution through a small needle into the dilated or abnormal vein.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Regards.
