Temporary Camouflage Options for Varicose Veins

You have varicose veins and you haven't done anything to treat them. You've thought about it and you've meant to make a doctor's appointment to deal with them but you haven't gotten around to doing that yet. Now you want to go out somewhere that requires you to wear shorts or a skirt and you want to know what you can do to hide those veins that you haven't treated yet.

A recent article reports two options for people who seek to camouflage their varicose veins:

1. Scar cover-up. There are products on the market that are intended to cover scars so that they can't be seen. These can also cover varicose veins so if you have an event that you want to wear shorts to, this can be a solution.

2. Support hose. Women can wear support hose that will cover the veins and prevent them from getting worse. Wearing evening wear pantyhose over the support hose will hide the support hose and the veins.

These are options for temporary hiding of varicose veins but they're not long term solutions. Call the doctor!

Question of the Day: What other methods are there of hiding or camouflaging varicose veins?
