What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are swollen vessels that occur near the surface of your skin. They’re usually quite prominent and are typically blue or purple in color. The medical name for this condition is varicose vein disease. Varicose veins can cause throbbing, aching and pain in various parts of your body. They can also lead to other serious health issues such as ulcers, blood clots and other vascular diseases.
What Causes Varicose Veins?
There are many risk factors associated with developing varicose veins, including age, gender, genetics and recent pregnancy. If you’re experiencing any symptoms of varicose veins or believe that you may be at risk for them due to the above reasons, your first step is to get a proper diagnosis from a dermatologist.
