In brief: No cure just rx

Thrombophlebits is a symptom and not a disease.
The underlying cause needs to be treated first. However if its severe and theres skin breakdown then an infection can occur. Antibiotics would be indicated. Otherwise depending on the cause , support stockings , anticoagulation etc may be needed.
