Vein treatment: As dr. Vorhies said, compression is the mainstay of treatment for venous leg ulcedrs and for edema. As dr. Bolhack said, the problem is venous hypertension coming from blood not flowing properly in your leg veins. Compression helps to control the increased venous pressure and reduces the inflammation the pressure causes. It is important that you have a venous ultrasound and treatment.
