Gaining weight will "hide" them with underlying fat. Spray tan may hide them temporarily. Check out www.Phlebology.Org, and see phlebologist in your area who can properly evaluate your veins and advise you accordingly. ...Read more

How serious are blood clots in the legs or thighs?

How serious are blood clots in the legs or thighs?

If you have a clot in the deep vein of the thigh, you'll need blood thinning drugs like coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
