What Are Varicose Veins?
Most common in women, varicose veins are the deeper, more serious versions of spider veins. Varicose veins are often thick, ropey veins that can be seen above the skin’s surface, usually on the legs. These cord-like veins can be red, blue, or flesh-colored and are often troublesome in both appearance and physicality. Varicose veins can cause pain, heaviness, swelling, restlessness, and even ulcers.
What Causes Varicose Veins?
Like most venous conditions and symptoms, varicose veins can develop for several reasons. These reasons include the following:
- Taking birth control pills or hormonal medications
Are Varicose Veins Dangerous?
Varicose veins can result in serious health issues if left untreated. This condition can lead to the following:
- Ulcers that are difficult to heal or resistant to treatment
- Sores that will not heal
- Thrombophlebitis, or a blood clot beneath the skin’s surface, characterized by pain and swelling
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can be fatal if a pulmonary embolism occurs
