Consequences of Vein Disease

When venous disorders go untreated, a number of complications can occur that can severely limit your lifestyle. In addition to chronic pain and unsightly varicose veins, recurring episodes of inflammation (phlebitis) can occur. Chronic skin problems including discoloration (hemosiderosis), rash (stasis dermatitis), scarring of tissues (lipodermatosclerosis) and development of ulcers also occur.
