Question: I'm supposed to wear compression stockings, but they make my legs itchy. What can I do to remedy this?

Answer: There are several different types of material and blends of fabrics that compression stockings come in. For daily use and significant degree of compression is not needed. 15-20 or 20-30mmHg compression is reasonable for most people. Alternately, there are compression wraps, tights, and leggings available by the more reputable companies that you may find less irritating. I suggest you look online to one of the larger companies, reach out to them, and see if they can recommended a specific solution based on your specific needs.
