General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi. I suggest you go in for surgicL treatment or laser therapy for the varicose veins. This will deal with them once and for all. For phlebitis there is no pernanent cure. You will have to be careful and manage it as and when it happens with heparin ointment, compression bandage and pain medicines. Take care.
