Do you have any remedies to fade away those bulging varicose veins on legs? And what does estrogen do?

In brief: Vein specialist

For varicose veins to actually "fade away", you would need treatment.
There isn't really any home treatment that will make them fade. I would recommend that you see a phlebologist or vein specialist.

In brief: No fade creams

There are no remedies that will make bulging varicose veins on the legs fade, except treatment.
A number of treatments are used that are very successful and which don't require surgery but which require seeing a physician who specializes in vein treatment and who can perform an ultrasound exam of your veins. (www.Phlebology.Org) estrogen doesn't help and in high enough doses can worsen things.

In brief: Let's see

Bulging varicose veins don't necessarily have to be treated.
If they are unsightly and if they are painful, they can be treated. See a reputable surgeon, interventional radilologist or other reputable physician and get an opinion. Don't be afraid of a 2nd or 3rd opinion. Estrogen may be contraindicated with these as estrogen is know to be associated with clots in the legs. See your pcp.

In brief: Bulging veins

Bulging veins are due to valve reflux and as such no remedies will fade them,if there is valve reflux this needs to be addressed usually by thermal ablation Estrogens are a more common factor in spider vein development,though use does carry a risk of dvt,though small
