Varicose Veins

Veins are thin walled vessels through which the impure blood is carried back to the heart. Varicose veins is a condition in which veins become enlarged, dilated, or thickened. This condition can occur in any part of the body but generally appears in the legs. Any condition that puts excessive pressure on the legs can lead to varicosity. Hormonal fluctuations, dietary deficiencies, loss of skin elasticity due to aging, prolonged standing, constrictive clothing, obesity or lack of exercise are contributory factors.
Symptoms:
  • Prominent dark blue blood vessels.
  • Aching and heaviness in a limb, sometimes accompanied by swelling, due to standing for a length of time.
  • Discolored, peeling skin and constant pain.
