Varicose veins cause their own type of rash, sometimes referred to as venous eczema or gravitational dermatitis. The itching, tightness and pain are directly related to the compromised blood supply to the legs and can have many appearances, from tight shiny skin to purple marks. Protecting your vein health can safeguard you from the pain and itching of venous eczema.
If you have varicose vein rashes, contact Mercyhealth Vein Clinic in Rockford.
