Irritation of the veins can cause a range of discomfort in the body. Even when you aren’t experiencing pain from vein irritation, you may have symptoms such as itching and burning in affected areas. The board-certified radiologists at Vein & Body Specialists specialize in vein disease and can help pinpoint the underlying causes of these symptoms and provide safe, effective treatment. If you live in Bellevue, Sandusky, Fremont, or Norwalk, Ohio, you can get relief from these uncomfortable symptoms.
Why Itching and Burning?
When considering venous disease, these sensations are most closely associated with venous stasis dermatitis. Venous stasis dermatitis is a condition of the skin which is very common in people with venous problems like varicose or spider veins.
What Are the Symptoms of Venous Eczema?
Itching and burning are the primary characteristics of this condition. Additionally, the affected area may present a red or brown, patchy rash. You may also experience throbbing, radiant heat, and slight pain in the area. Left untreated, venous stasis dermatitis can also cause skin ulcers.
Why Do I Have Itching and Burning?
When venous eczema is present, there is increased pressure on the veins in the legs due to weak or damaged valves. When the valves in the legs are not working correctly, blood can pool in the lower extremities and cause a range of symptoms. This build-up of pressure in the area causes venous eczema and, therefore, burning and itching.

Very nice place to be treated for varicose veins and other personal enhancement issues. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I have just started going here, but it seems like I will be happy I picked Vein and Body!
I had the Opus Laser treatment done, around my eyes, by Jasmine. I personally didnt have ANY pain. I don't have any redness and my eyes feel cool and "energized!!" I go back in 3 weeks. Staff is super friendly and down to earth. 10/10 recommend!
