Support hose: The easiest way to control swelling is support hose. You can find OTC (over the counter) support hose at drug stores, medical supply stores and some department sores, like Macy's. Also decrease salt intake and drink more water. If swelling persists, see a doctor.

Feet swelling in the: Swelling of the lower extremities is common in anyone who stands all day. This is worsened in people who are overweight. Consider people as glasses of water when they stand the water goes to the feet, at night the water spreads throughout the body and when you awaken the leg swelling is gone. It is only after many hours of standing or uprightness that makes the water settle in the legs again.
