Varicose veins can lead to complications that require medical attention. Dr. Shoaib Padaria, one of India’s leading Vein Specialists and Past President of the Venous Association of India, explains when to seek medical attention for varicose vein complications.
Complications of Varicose Veins
- Ulcers: Varicose veins can cause skin ulcers, which are open sores that can be painful and difficult to heal. If you have a skin ulcer on your leg, it’s important to seek medical attention.
- Blood Clots: Varicose veins can increase the risk of blood clots, which can be life-threatening if they travel to the lungs. If you experience sudden swelling, pain, or warmth in your leg, seek medical attention immediately.
- 3. Bleeding: Varicose veins can sometimes bleed if they are injured or irritated. If you experience bleeding from a varicose vein, apply pressure and seek medical attention.
