If the blue veins are no longer visible, then it probably is dehydration. ...Read more

How long does it take the body to make a new vein or artery around a blocked one?

How long does it take the body to make a new vein or artery around a blocked one?

Not the way: In most parts of the body, there are redundant elements of the blood supply, so that if one vessel is blocked, the others already present take over. New vessels are not grown to jump over the blockage. This is not true for the brain and back of the eye where blocked vessels create permanent damage as collateral vessel are not present in these tissues. ...Read more

My veins sometimes feel like they are burning. This occurs in various parts of my body and occurs sporadically. Why?

Burning: Normal veins don't cause this symptom. It is more likely due to periodic irritability of superficial nerves in the skin and would be a type of neuropathy. If the symptoms are quite noticeable and frequent, get checked for deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, iron, b12, for elevated blood sugar and your thyroid status. Discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Fair skinned people tend to have more easily visible veins than darker individuals and hereditary plays a strong role also. In a healthy person, visible veins are usually not of any concern. ...Read more

Hi Just had a baby 10 weeks ago I can see normal green veins all over my body. What can I do to hide these there not nice. Look like a road map?

Varicose Veins: Sometimes during or after pregnancy, the veins can become distended due to increase blood volume and hormonal changes that occur. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any non-invasive treatments for them. Depending on size and location, sclerosis of the vessels can be done (scarring them down with chemicals or laser light). Speak with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Why are my veins so visible and my skin feels hot. My whole body feels like water ballons?

Why are my veins so visible and my skin feels hot. My whole body feels like water ballons?

Vasodilation: When the body's temperature is elevated or is hot, the body will cause skin vasodilation or enlargement of the veins to reduce the heat of the body and this means you will see your veins more clearly. I am not sure of the balloon feeling except it could be related to the same reason as above. Good luck ...Read more
