Our expert says:
The tendency to develop spider veins is usually genetic. However capillary fragility may contribute to this condition. Vitamin C is known to help prevent capillary fragility, so you can try eating foods rich in vitamin C like citrus fruits, all berries, guavas, mango, pawpaw, the entire cabbage family, and spinach. Don't take massive doses of vit C tablets because this can cause kidney stones, rather use dietary sources instead. Consult a Dermatologist for treatment of the spider veins.
