Lymphangitis Treatment?

Hope everyone is having a great day. We are picking up a new horse tomorrow from a friend. Her finances are getting as tight as everyone elses and she no longer has the time or the money to further treat her mare. The mare is in awesome condition other than the rear leg, which was diagnosed with lymphangitis last fall. They have treated her with antibiotics, cold hosing, stall rest, hand walking, DMSO, and of course a great feed program. Right now the swelling has been reduced to merely a fat ankle and some some small scars from the skin cracking open. I was curious if anyone else has any experience dealing with this, as she is prone to have a larger flare up every now and then of the swelling. She is sound, not in pain (thankfully) and her prior owner has done everything right, so thankfully, we're not working against any odds. We've heard there is possibly a compression stocking of sorts also that might work? Any help or ideas would be great!!
