      Hello Deejay You could take a combination of Venaforce Horse Chestnut and also a colloidal silica supplement. Horse Chestnut is known to improve venous circulation and silica is known to aid skin healing. You could also add in a zinc supplement 15mg once a day as this is important for the skin too.
