    I don't know if this is common to this illness, but I have one burning question: does taking a very warm detox bath help or hurt varicose veins?

    It feels good, but I wonder if it's a good idea, or if it causes problems.

    I would appreciate any experenced answer here, thanks in advance!

    I found contradictory advice, but more discouraging hot baths than otherwise.

    I do take epsom salt baths, and one site encouraged that, but said to end it with a cool rinse.

    Guess I answered my own question.
