After sclerotherapy to a varicose vein I have noticed what appears to be a blood clot beneath the skin. Is this common?

Injected varicose vein should have evacuation.

Superficial vein thrombophlebitis
Clinically, I would advise that you take ibuprofen for pain relief. Contact the vein specialist immediately to be seen for this.
