Our expert says:
If the skin is red and warm you may need antibiotics, only vein inflammation is treated with thrombophob alone. Thrombophlebitis can take a while to subside. It may help to use 1/2 Disprin per day to keep the blood thin if you don't have any problems with blood otherwise and if you don't use a blood thinner already. Elevate your leg if swollen and use a warm washcloth to apply heat to the involved area several times daily.
Try getting some exercise like walking - even if you break it into small 5 min sessions 6 times a day.
