    I'm 27 and have noticed I've started to get thread veins on my inner thighs, next to my knees! It looks awful!! Apparently your more likely to get them if your over weight. :( It does run in my family, as my sister and mum have it aswell. Is there any way of stopping them from getting any worse?? Or am I destined never to show off my knees again?? :confused:

    I got anti inflammatory cream from the doctor for my varicose vein and she said I could use it on the tiny thread veins too. It's called movelat.
