What happens if you don't get varicose veins treated?
Varicose veins, usually occur in the legs and are usually lumpy twisted veins that lie just underneath the skin. They are a common condition usually caused by damaged vein or weak vein walls and valves varicose veins may form whenever blood pressure increases inside the veins. They are generally benign and there could be a lot of causes which are largely unidentified.
Varicose veins are usually identified when the veins, usually in the leg are very prominent and appear to be swollen and bulging from the skin.
They are dark purple or blue in colour.
What happens if they are not treated?
The varicose veins progress to the next stages, where there is more pain and complications, in stage 2, the veins are very prominent and visible.
As it progresses to the next stage(3), the untreated varicose veins start to evolve into other diseases like edema, this progresses through the day and increases due to long hours of standing.
When the varicose veins progress to stage 4, it causes skin discoloration, the skin becomes thinner , and the brown discoloration appears as a stain on the skin. This is because of the blood leaking from the blood vessels and into the skin tissue.
In stage 5, it has already reached an advanced stage and it is extremely painful, itchy and requires immediate treatment.
