Varicose Veins are usually treated with antibiotics, but there is an alternative to the antibiotic that might be easier to manage: Vitamin C. If the varicose veins are not getting enough vitamin C, they can become yellow. If the veins are becoming yellow, the treatment may be to take a calcium supplement, since calcium in itself is helpful in treating varicose veins. If there are any other symptoms, it may be worth having a regular doctor visit to check for varicose veins.
Varicose Veins: A good starting point is that these veins should be clear if they are not painful. They may also be light yellow if the skin is dry and red. If a physician feels that the varicose veins are not being helped by vitamin C and calcium supplements, they may want to recommend another treatment. One of the treatments commonly used is to use a medicine called Aspirin. This medication will help clear the varicose veins. The main problem is that many people with varicose veins will never know the difference, and use it as a remedy for themselves. A few people have had it help them, but not often enough to justify using it.
