Hello and welcome to just answer.

I will be happy to answer your question [s].

It depends on the cause.

If it is bad veins, then compression stockings, walking, and weight loss.

There are other causes

thyroid disease

heart disease

kidney disease

liver disease

lymph vessel disease.

In these cases the underlying cause must also be treated medically.
