Can little blue veins on my legs go away or am I stuck with them?

Can little blue veins on my legs go away or am I stuck with them?

Sclerotherapy: The good news is you are not stuck with those blue veins. Depending on their size, they can be very effectively treated with sclerotherapy (for small veins), phlebectomy (for med size veins) and endovenous ablation for the larger veins. All of these procedures can be done in an outpatient office. See an experienced vein specialist for evaluation so they can determine which treatment is best! ...Read more

Multiple reasons: Veins return blood back to the heart and can carry a large volume of blood. Depending on many factors including levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and even physical activity, the size of the veins will vary. Another important function of the veins is to help control body temperature and this too will affect vein size. Bulging veins, however, are not normal. See a vein specialist. ...Read more

Reticular Veins.: There are essentially 3 types of veins-spider veins, varicose veins and blue or reticular veins. These blue veins are also called feeding veins because they can be leading into spider veins. Fair skinned people tend to have more easily seen blue veins. There is no proof that these blue veins will progress to varicose veins. If you have a lot of these veins you may want to have a venous sono. ...Read more

I have some blue-ish blotches on my legs. Not bruises. Have had them before I can remember. Blue veins also show. I have iron deficiency. Causes?

Many possible causes: Bluish blotches are difficult to diagnose without examination. They could represent blue nevi (moles) if they have the description of moles. However, blue blotches in the legs are often related to varicose veins and are due to long periods of standing. They can be painful too. There are other causes as well. Iron deficiency is unlikely to be related. You need to see a doctor for examination. ...Read more
