Neither: Despite the promise of such treatments, there is no topical substance that removes or reduces veins aside from camouflage techniques. All veins appear more noticeable when exposed to heat, exercise, or around menstrual cycles.

See a phlebologist: Prominent veins on the abdomen and chest can signal venous obstruction in the legs. If this happened recently and your legs are swollen, see a phlebologist right away. If not, you may just have prominent veins. I doubt the sensitivity is anything to worry about.

Blood clot: Thrombosis means blood clot. In the leg a thrombosis may be within a superficial vein or deep vein. Superficial thrombosis, or phlebitis, is usually less severe but can progress to deep vein thrombosis (dvt). Dvt has the potential to cause permanent damage to the vein resulting in lifelong swelling and ulceration, or can embolize to the lung and cause death.
