Varicose Veins

What Are Varicose Veins?

Unlike smaller veins, varicose veins can be much more bulbous and protrude out from the skin. It’s not uncommon for varicose veins to cause uncomfortable symptoms, including swelling, rashes, ulcers and aches. A person may have varicose veins and accompanying symptoms without visible veins present.

Varicose Vein Symptoms

For some people, varicose veins are painless,
though permanently visible. Varicose veins
can present in a number of ways on the skin:

Some patients may experience discomfort or complications from varicose veins:

  • heaviness and fatigue
  • cramps and aching in the calves and feet
  • bleeding from the veins
  • itchy skin rashes.

In less common cases, varicose veins can cause blood clots. These may cause complications like thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis. In thrombophlebitis, a blood clot blocks a vein and causes hard, painful lumps near the skin’s surface. Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition where clots form in the deep veins of the legs.
