I would like to know how I can improve the varicose Eczema on the bottom of my legs please.

I do not get any pain but I do have a patch of red on my legs that look unsightly and would like to get rid of the red marks please. Thank you (Caroline)

Dear Caroline

Thank you for your question. Try eumovate cream over the counter once daily for at least 1 month and hydromol cream or ointment twice a day. Ask your GP practice nurse to check your legs artery pressure (ABPI) and if normal you can try support stockings for 3 months. If this does not help see you GP or dermatologist for a stronger topical treatment and a vascular surgeon for treatment of varicose veins.
I hope this sis helpful.
Kind Regards,
