Ignore varicose veins? What can happen?

3 mins read

Firstly, don’t panic. Timely treatment of Varicose veins can help from the condition degrading further into life-threatening complications. The treatment for varicose veins depends upon the following stages of vein damage: 

Stage 1: 

Milder versions of varicose veins with signs such as heaviness in the legs, irritation, and pain are generally treated with non-surgical methods such as lifestyle changes and medications. 

Stage 2:

If you ignore the mild varicose veins as just a cosmetic issue, the condition might degrade further as the blood will start pooling in the legs turning the veins to dark blue or purple. At this stage, if you consult a doctor, either s/he will prescribe you a conservative treatment or prescribe a minimally invasive laser treatment for varicose veins depending upon the seriousness of your condition. 

Stage 3:

Now, if you ignore the condition even further, then you will experience swelling and throbbing pain in the legs. As the condition advances, skin ulcers might start forming. At this advanced stage of varicose veins, you are at the risk of developing non-healing skin ulcers. In some cases, the varicose veins can burst and bleed or turn into DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) or Thrombophlebitis (an inflammatory process that causes a blood clot to form and block one or more veins). 

If you are diagnosed with varicose veins, timely treatment is the key. Do not ignore any signs and symptoms and consult your doctor even at the slightest doubt.
