What Is Skin Discoloration?
When caused by vein disease, skin discoloration is described as the skin's surface turning red, brown, or black in color, usually in a patch or area on the legs or feet. This kind of skin discoloration results from venous reflux and can also cause itching, scabbing, and cracking of the skin.
What Causes Skin Discoloration?
In vein disease, the valves can become damaged or weak to the point where blood can no longer successfully be pumped back to the heart. When this occurs, the blood pools in the legs and feet, creating excess pressure. When the pressure becomes too much for the veins in the lower extremities, the blood can seep into the surrounding soft tissue, resulting in visible “stains” above the skin’s surface. Iron in our blood can leak into the skin from the vein. The iron leakage into the skin that causes brown staining is called hemosiderin. The staining of the skin related to the veins leaking iron is known as hemosiderin staining.
What Is the Treatment for Skin Discoloration?
