Veins In Palms Of Hands Blue
My sister is age of 11, she has no disease but her left hand's wrist veins pain and turns into dark blue colour.
Veins: Blood in veins being deoxygenated looks purplish normally. Veins should not be painful unless they are inflamed (phlebitis) in which case they would be hardened and tender to the touch. My guess is that her hand discomfort is due to other causes such as sprain, contusion, etc. A physician will need to examine her if symptoms persist or if redness or swelling develop. ...Read more
I have a black/blue knot above my hand on the left side of my wrist that just appeared, my veins are occasionally bulging in my hand as well.
The vein has valve to direct blood flow one direction, where engorging may happen, as the blood pooling which direction of blood went opposite, different direction.

Hi I have dark blue/ purple veins on the inside of my hand and they feel itching from within is that normal?
Doesn't sound normal: Sounds like the way my hands feel after being in the snow, but it says you are in Australia, so unless you work in a cold environment (meat section of grocery store etc) it is unlikely this is a response to low temperature! Could possibly be an allergic response causing the itching. Best thing is to have a Dr examine your skin, check the circulation in hands and determine the best treatment. ...Read more
Is it possible to pinch a vein shut? The vein in my thumb was smashed. It is now bright blue, hard an raised. It is making my whole hand tingle.
Nah. It ain't so Joe: You caused a nice big BRUISE by whacking the thumb but it's not a vein or anything like that...it's the swelling and accumulation of fluids including blood. If it's causing tingling in the hand then, you should have it looked at right away. It may need decompression otherwise, you could have nerve damage that's permanent from the accumulated pressure that's not being released. Ice down a lot. ...Read more
Yes: Our veins carry blood that has had most of the oxygen removed from it -- that's why it looks blue. We often will notice something about our body that we haven't before -- that is normal. The best way to know if it is OK, is to see your doctor. If you're not worried, and no one else has noted, take a "selfie" of your neck, so you can watch for any change. If there is something, see your Dr. ...Read more
My wife had an IV in her arm and it was removed 3 days ago and now her arm hurts and the back side of her hand has blue veins. Is this normal?
Not necessarily: An IV that has been out for three days shouldn't hurt or be uncomfortable anymore. The presence of distended or darker veins is concerning for a blood clot. If our wife is still in the hospital she should show it to a nurse or her doctor. If she is home she should call her doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

I have been inflamed a vein of the palm of the hand due to an effort. I aplicated trombocid but couldn't remove it. Any solutions?
I doubt: ...That your assessment/diagnosis is accurate. There are not to many superficial veins visible on the palm. They are mostly over the back of your hand. I rather believe that you possibly injured one of the tendons existing in the palm that move your fingers and you may have tendinitis. Regardless of which hand is affected u can try an anti-inflammatory (motrin, aleve (naproxen)) I would show it to ur md. ...Read more

I happen to notice that after taking my hbp medication that the veins on my hand, opposite my palm, enlarge. Could there be a direct connection? Aging
Yes: This is a very astute observation. Medication to reduce blood pressure often contain what are called vasodilators which dilate blood vessels including the veins. This will result in more blood pooling in the veins which will be observed as the veins becoming enlarged. This pooling of blood helps to decrease the peripheral resistance of the body to decrease the blood pressure. ...Read more
