Phlebitis is a inflammation of a vein wall or tissues around the vein, is that right?

See vein specialist.: Superficial phlebitis or thrombophlebitis is a clot in a superficial vein and can occur with or without varicose veins. The clot usually is hard and tender. The surrounding tissue is normal. Most superficial phlebitis is treated with localized wet heat and ibuprofen. There is a small risk that this clot can extend into other veins. You should see a vein specialist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Should a person recently recovering from phlebitis in the saphenous vein avoid air travel? Precautions?

Not TED hose: I agree with dr. Kohl about the risk of getting a DVT with long airplane flights. It is recommended that if you are on a flight that is longer than 2 hours, you should wear graduated compression stockings. Anti-embolism stockings (such as teds hose) don't supply enough compression for someone who is up and active. Besides wearing compression stockings your should get up and walk too. ...Read more

Could my possible foot injury have aggravated the varicose veins and caused phlebitis?

Could my possible foot injury have aggravated the varicose veins and caused phlebitis?

Possibly: As dr. Berg said, if it is on the same side, maybe. However, if you aren't even sure that you have injured your foot, it seems less likely. An injury can certainly cause phlebitis, but it is usually more direct and easy to connect. You can certainly get phlebitis simply because you have varicose veins. The most important thing that you need is an unltrasound and then treatment. ...Read more

Got phlegm ball that has a thick vein like texture with some green coloring & some blood twice in 2 days. I also have a viral infection. What is it?

Hard to know: You may have ruptured a small blood vessel coughing or because of the inflammation due to the infection. You may also have developed a secondary bacterial infection, or the initial diagnosis may have been incorrect. But the answer is that without examining this material and you, it is impossible to tell for certain what this may be. If it keeps up, please go see your doctor. ...Read more

Feels like raised veins in my thighs near my crotch (female). Very sore. What is it? Can I treat it like yeast infection. Can't be hemmoroids, right?

No: Though a bladder infection would cause increased redness and vascular congestion in the lining of the bladder, it would not generally cause the other veins in your body to be more prominent. Visible prominence of veins in body usually related to being very well hydrated and warm along with your individual genetics and body composition slender, muscular).

Got some burning/pain in both jugular veins. Got hashimotos and alot of infections. Is it because of those two?

Unlikely: Probably not. But if you have tenderness along the jugular vein you should have it checked out. It is probably some inflamed lymph nodes. It could be a clot in the jugular vein but this would be pretty unlikely on both sides. Check with your primary doctor. ...Read more

A burn caused by flames 2" long ×1" wide on leg. Red ring, white, can see veins & white bumps that itch sometimes. Possible infection?

A burn caused by flames 2" long ×1" wide on leg. Red ring, white, can see veins & white bumps that itch sometimes. Possible infection?

Burn injury: It's probably a good idea to show this burn wound to a professional. "Redness" around a wound or injury like this could indicate localized infection. If there are 'white' bumps too it could be some exudate (pus) from the wound. If that's a second degree burn though it could also be healing zones that are popping out. You don't want this to get any worse, so I would recc seeing a doctor. ...Read more

Hmm. I have some? S: For you. First, when you say you went to the bathroom, what exactly did you pass this mass from? Was this in your stool, urine or did you pass this through your vagina? If you passed this through the vagina I wonder if you might have been pregnant. If this was in your stool, did you travel lately or eat any undercooked pork? Lastly, when did this happen?

Is there any risk besides infection and not a perfect result with dermal fillers? What happens if doctor injects into a vein or artery?

Is there any risk besides infection and not a perfect result with dermal fillers? What happens if doctor injects into a vein or artery?

Bad Outcome.: If a dermal filler is injected into an artery or a vein potential complications can and probably will occur. If injected into an artery, the filler can cause the artery to clot or can be carried downstream to damage whatever that artery is feeding. Similarly, if injected into a vein, the filler can cause the vein to clot, become infected or pass upstream into another area. ...Read more

Dr wrapped a rubber tourniquet (soiled with others' blood) on my arm & touched my acne (looking for vein). Any blood-borne infection concern?

Realistically, no: Please forgive my frankness. If you did not point out that you saw blood on the tourniquet, if in fact that was the case, you were neglectful of your own health. I don't see this as a real danger despite our cautious times. The bacteria in your acne aren't going to make you septic; a few of them will get into your bloodstream whenever you pop a pimple. ...Read more
