Default Varicose Veins?

I've started getting a few varicose veins on the top of my foot/ankle the last few years. This winter they have gotten a lot worse...I'm stressing about wearing sandals this summer. Both feet have bulgy squiggly veins on top. One has just started to go up my leg from my ankle. I have seen a lot of natural treatments online, but not sure any of it would work. I'm overweight...I've lost 35 pounds but still have about 60 more to lose. I'm hoping that they won't get worse in the meantime.
Anyone have any success treating them?

Probably not the answer you are looking for, but I had surgery on a vein on the back of my knee over 10 years ago. Never came back. It wasn't painful but looked awful. I was so self conscious about it. I had to wear compression stockings, which could help you but sure are hot!

If the source is a faulty valve and it causes fatigue (as in you get tired just from standing) or they are forming clots, these can be removed with insurance coverage. For just appearance, they can still be removed as a cosmetic surgery.

I've thought about getting some compression stockings. I've looked at them but wasn't sure I was getting the right size. If they are too loose or too tight they don't work, right? I haven't seen a doctor about them yet. Do I see my primary care?
