    Default Varicose veins?

    Does anyone have a good recommendation for dealing with varicose veins? I've got them on just one leg, but they are pretty nasty looking. Very big and bubbly. They usually don't hurt too much, right now, although sometimes at the end of the day, they're a little achy. I try to walk with the kids, and keep my leg elevated when I sit, and I'm taking Vitamin E (midwife recommended that) but is there anything else? I know I could get support hose, but it is almost summer here, and that doesn't sound too thrilling. But then, I guess it's better than sore ugly legs.
    Thanks!
