Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

Patients with varicose veins have very sensitive skin that can get damaged on performing stress full activities or exercises.

Using proper pressure bandages that provide proper support to the skin during such activities prevents such skin bruises or damage.

I hope this helps.
