Sclerotherapy - post procedure care
However, it is difficult to say that these are thrombo obliterated veins as they would NOT look 'whiteish' but rather would have an inflammatory reaction on the skin called hyperpigmentation.
I HIGHLY recommend that you get a venous Doppler Ultrasound (venous Duplex) scan done to determine what these are - whether they are related to veins and the sclerotherapy effect or if they are something unrelated like lipomas or something else. Ultrasound componennt of the Duplex scan can be helpful in determining what it is and the Doppler component in excluding a vascular structure.
