Why do your legs itch when you have vein disease?

0 Comment

Due to the pressure in the veins, red blood cells are forced into the tissue outside the vein. The red blood cells break up releasing iron into the surrounding tissue. This in turn causes an irritation and patients begin to experience the classic symptom of “itchy legs”. If left untreated the condition can deteriorate further into Venous Stasis Dermatitis. With this worsening condition, blood continues to collect in the legs, ankles and feet while pigmentation from the red blood cells stains the skin from the inside. A redish-brown discoloration develops on the skin. It is vitally important to treat vein disease early before these symptoms begin tho alter your quality of life.
