Varicose veins and itching

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins and itching


Avatar f tn It started with me noticing the veins on my palms and fingers appearing very blue sometimes (almost like they've been drawn with blue pen) and has progressed from my hand and feet up my legs and arms and I also see veins on my neck and around my eyes. This comes and goes - there doesn't seem to be a pattern though I've noticed it generally happens more in the evening and doesn't seem linked to temperature.
Avatar f tn I think i may have vulvar vericose veins .. i have been experiencing itching and discomfort of underwear and sometimes extreme dryness and sometimes extreme wetness .. i can see a few small veins bulging with a mirror im 30 weeks pregnant . I though it was a yeast infection but its not. It makes sex very painful and after sex even worse cause of swelling.
Avatar m tn Hello, These can be due to penile varicose veins or Monor’s disease. It is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis. This is an inflammatory reaction to a clot within the vein. This subsequently causes blockages and dilation of the vein. It is typically painless, but can be painful. In studies, patients were noted to have thrombophlebitis after a prolonged sexual act with or without intercourse. It was described as cord-like thickening of the superficial penile veins.
Avatar f tn Hello and sorry for the late reply. Varicose veins can cause discoloration of the skin. But if there is itching, it could be due to an allergic reaction. The other causes could be due to a fungal infection, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis and scabies. Usually there is itching and some amount of inflammation with these conditions. You will need to consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you can take OTC Benadryl. Regards.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your symptoms are typically due to varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.They are common in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing. Symptoms include pain in the legs, discoloration near the affected veins,redness, dryness, and itchiness of areas of skin - termed stasis dermatitis and restless leg syndrome.Traetment may be conservative(with medicines) and interventional(surgical or non surgical).
Avatar n tn Do you have varicose(bulging) veins by any chance? I do and sometimes they itch and I scratch them to the point of bruising.
Avatar f tn ex. varicose veins, etc. they can be inside and not visible, too. It may be hard or impossible, but maybe try exercising with tight on to help compress the veins. Does it go away when you rest and put your feet up? Best wishes.
Avatar m tn It seems to be in line with one of my veins, and she mentioned it may be varicose. She submitted my request for a referral, which I will find out in 2 days if it is authorized (I'm in the Army and you have to jump through hoops to get referrals). She also authorized an ultrasound, but they couldn't fit me in for a month... so it's a waiting game. I'm just tired of this feeling. Could it be herpes, especially if there was a false negative on the test?
Avatar f tn Stasis eczema appears as rough reddish, purplish, swollen, itchy skin on lower legs in persons with varicose veins, vein thrombosis or other vessel related disorders. It can also be possible that you have urticaria or hives. It is frequently caused by allergic reactions. The allergen can be in the environment, food or even insect bite can cause hives. Get it evaluated by a dermatologist.Only an external examination can confirm the cause. Do write to me again. Take care and best regards!
Avatar n tn It was (I think) a tight circumcision and there's a visible scar line. I've been feeling a light itching from one spot on the scar line most of the time since I had the circumcision. A couple months after, just a couple months ago, I've noticed blue/purple veins appear IN the lower skin covering my shaft. They are VERY visible when skin pulled up the shaft or with a condom on.
908392 tn?1316526499 To clear up warts or treat varicose veins, take molasses internally and apply a daily poultice. To promote speedy healing of wounds, take molasses pre- and post-surgery. Peppermint Oil: Apply peppermint oil
 to the skin. It helps treat itching and inflammation by softening the skin Potatoes: To treat a burn, apply cold, crushed, raw potato to the area. If the potato is not cold, mix it with ice. To treat boils, make a poultice of raw potatoes.
Avatar n tn My mum has pretty bad thread veins and also varicose veins on her legs, I have some small patches of thread veins, and I think I shall get varicose veins when I'm older so I don't know if that has anything to do with it?? Does anyone have any ideas?! Thank you for reading and for any help I get!!
11587059 tn?1427631863 The tingling fingers and feet sound like poor blood circulation which is also related to varicose veins I think. (Varicose veins are due to blood not pumping all the way through and backlogging/leaking back into the veins.) Bruised legs also circulatory, sounds like spider veins, which are related to varicose but don't stick out and they spread out more. Itching could be circulatory as well, or puppps or liver issues or allergies or sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn The cause has to be found, it may be an ulcer or varicose veins in esophagus. How old are you? Drinking alcohol? If you are bloated, and think that diarrhea is related to milk products, than have a lactose-free diet trial for 2 days. If you are lactose intolerant, symptoms should lessen in this time. You may also try with low-fructose diet in case you're fructose intolerant. For more, check the journal under my username.
429700 tn?1308011423 I've noticed no itching at the site of my injections, but I have noticed some really, really, ugly broken capillaries (I think that's what it is). I've been noticing the varicose veins these past two years, and now, OMG, they are REALLY disgusting to look at where I'm giving myself injections!!!! I do hope that you find something that helps with the itching. Take care, Ess.
Avatar f tn It could also be varicose veins in your vag (yes, that can happen). Varicose veins are itchy and painful but not life threatening. Since you're having normal discharge that would be my bet. Ask your Dr/midwife to take a look. I don't know what can be done to relieve vaginal varicose veins but your provider should.
469720 tn?1388149949 Also, there are specific medical conditions that may increase your risk of developing a DVT via these three mechanisms, such as congestive heart failure, severe obesity, chronic respiratory failure, a history of smoking, varicose veins, pregnancy and estrogen treatment. If you are concerned that you may be at risk due to any of these conditions, please consult with your physician.
Avatar m tn no varicose veins on either leg.
Avatar n tn I am 66 and I have having a itching problem on the outside left leg more or less about 8 inches from my left feet. There is any sign of cuts, abrasion or anything on my leg.
Avatar n tn Stasis dermatitis can occur when fluid accumulates in the tissues just beneath your skin. Varicose veins and other chronic conditions in your legs can cause the fluid buildup. Stasis dermatitis is often a chronic condition. Symptoms may be minimized if the underlying condition and edema can be controlled. Oral antibiotics are useful when cellulitis is present; topical antibiotics are useless and often cause contact dermatitis. ref:http://www.internationaleczema-psoriasisfoundation.
Avatar n tn In extreme cases blood can actually flow backwards from portal circulation to systemic circulation, leading to varicose veins in stomach (gastric varices), esophagus (esophageal varices), and rectum (hemorrhoids). Ruptured varices bleed massively and are often fatal. Bilirubin levels may build up in the blood, causing jaundice and bright yellow to dark brown urine. Cirrhosis can also cause insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus.
1601375 tn?1297615951 Please advise on what could be the possible causes of this and how to avoid. (She has sometimes what appears like varicose veins on legs, very slight, I am not sure about it just saw some images on Google). Please help out.
1301836 tn?1305625415 since day 1 and they're 40E now and buldging out of my nursing bras! aching legs, back and cramps (mainly at night and boy do they hurt) stuffy nose...not to mention my unrelated chest infection which ruined my xmas and new year.... general puffiness from my swollen ankles to my puffy face... the constant urge to pee....and the stress incontinence as every thing is so slack due to hormones and the weight of baby and everything...i can't feel a thing down there...
Avatar m tn I did see a doctor about it a while ago and he said it was a condition ( i can't remember what it was called) that was not serious and that nothing could be done about it, something to do with me being tall and the pressure being put on my feet and that i would probably get Varicose veins at some point. I'm worried that it seems to be getting worse though and spreading, do i need to be concerned? I stress about such things!
534785 tn?1329595808 From reading my GP's diagnoses notes from my appointments with her, I discovered that she thinks I have globular hystericus, or that I'm imaging the lump in my throat that's been making it difficult for me to swallow and breathe over the past 5 months. She also attributed the edema in my legs to varicose veins...I only have two small varicose veins on my right leg that I've had for a long time now from crossing my legs a where else, so I have no idea where she's coming up with this.
Avatar n tn It is more often very tight than free hanging. I have 3 veins that consistently are dilated and varicose in my sac. But the redness pattern stays the same, it never changes. I often get burning in my legs, outer thighs and top of feet. But that comes and goes. Sitting seems to make it worse. The one constant is like a buzzing tingling feeling in my nuts. That is the most predominant symptom. Does anyone out there have a similar experience? Has anyone tried Acupuncture?
Avatar n tn is this a form of varicose veins? the reason i suspect that it may be is that it comes and goes, the lump is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in dia. it occasionally itches and is blueish in color. I have been able to keep the itching to a minimum by wearing an ace bandage snugly around my wrist but not so tight as to cause additional problems. also i tried using the top of a childs sock(elastic) and this seemed to control the lump too. when pressed on it disappears for a few minutes then reappears...
Avatar m tn Hello, I am 51 years old man, I'm having problem with skin discoloration around my ankles for both feet, itching, swelling some times and spreading up my leg accompanied by pain, could you please help me to find the wright treatment, I had seen many doctors in Jordan most of them prescribed cold cream for this but I not convinced because still not treated. again I need your help please.
Avatar n tn It was this belief that that immediately gave a massive leap forward towards my recovery, and the effects were immediate. I felt my blood flowing through my veins in my arms and hands and with that went some of the pain. It felt like a massive release when I believed that this was infact the source of my pain. It all started to make sense as I myself have deep down repressed feelings and as my stress levels increased, so did my physical pain.
