Generally normal activities can be resumed after Sclerotherapy.  Medical support hosiery is required and should be worn for several days/weeks depending upon the severity of the veins as this assists in the resolution of the veins.  Itching can last 1-2 days after procedure – use the antibiotic gel which will be given to you.
