The purpose of this study is to investigate if wearing of compression stockings influences the skin moisture. Conservative stockings are compared with urea containing compression stockings to find out if using urea prevents dehydration of the skin while wearing the urea compression stockings. Secondary aim was to find out if urea containing stockings increase the compliance to wear the compression stockings regulary by patients with diagnosed chronic venous insufficiency.
