Demystifying Varicose Veins: Triggers and Underlying Causes


Blood vessels that are twisted and enlarged beneath the skin’s surface are known as varicose veins. Usually, these purple or blue bulges show up in your ankles, feet, and legs. They may itch or cause pain. Spider veins are tiny red or purple lines that show up on the surface of your skin. They can surround varicose veins.

For most people, although they can be unpleasant and ugly, varicose veins are not hazardous. Severe varicose veins can occasionally result in life-threatening conditions like blood clots. The majority of varicose vein problems can be treated at home by you or by your healthcare practitioner using injections, laser therapy, or surgery.
