Too long.

If you still have a hard vein and the burning pain is continuing, you should have it checked out by a physician. Some cases need minor surgery to treat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You could try warm packs to improve the blood supply to the area. Make sure that it is not infected. Signs of infection are red, hot, swollen, tender to the touch and getting worse. I like neosporin or bacitricin for my wounds. Apply 2-3 times a day. ...Read more
