Is there a safe way for the treatment of these veins so I don`t harm my unborn baby?

I have varicous veins which have become red and rather sore. I have been wearing knee high compression stockings everyday and night for the past 2 weeks. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant. Is there a safe way for the treatment of these veins (medication ways, if it comes to that) so I don`t harm my unborn baby?

Answer: Hi, You can visit your GP for some possible medication to ease the discomfort. Otherwise the stockings should help and also raising your legs when resting and using moisturizer on the veins. Best wishes, Alex
