Venous Leg Vein Care Questions

I have bulging veins that burn, ache, and itch. An area around one leg even goes numb. What should I do about this?
Venous Leg Vein Care -1 answer
I'm obese and post-menopausal. On the front of my left upper thigh, I have 4 small rock-like bulges that are in a straight row. At times they burn and ache; sometimes they are larger than other times. I take cool showers when they burn. On my right leg (outer upper thigh), there has been a small bulging purple vein that itches bad and looks like its leaking. That area also goes numb, yet still itches. I scratch trying to satisfy the deep itching below the numbness but fail to reach it.

Is it safe to take an 11-hour flight if I have a superficial blood clot in one of my legs?
Venous Leg Vein Care -1 answer
I have some redness and bruise-like pain (only on touching) on the front of my lower left leg. These symptoms are occurring near an area of varicose veins. I've been told I have a superficial blood clot that will resolve itself with elevation, NSAID cream, etc. I need to take an 11-hr flight in less than a week with return 14 days later. Is this safe? Should I wait until redness (less than 5cm) is completely gone? I did back and forth 8-hr flights 3 mos ago.

Venous Leg Vein Care -2 answers
The treated leg itches a lot, specifically down the center. I removed the badges and am wearing the support knee-high compression stocking, but the itching feels like it's under the skin. Is this normal?
