Barely hit my hand/fingers & the vein/vessel burst, stings, hurts & then turns purple. I'm in my 30's & had this since a child. Why? What causes it?

Vein bursting: If you are experiencing increasing amounts of bruising, there are a few concerns. One would be if your blood is unusually thin. This can be because of low platelets (the clotting cell of your blood) or a decrease in the amounts of clotting factors. You should discuss this with your doctor as simple blood tests can diagnosis this. There can also be structural problems with the veins causing this. ...Read more

Could running/jogging/walking cause my veins to burst?

Could running/jogging/walking cause my veins to burst?

This is especially true during exercise. Patients often have leg swelling and pain during and after leg exercise. Occasionally, the pressure is so high that a skin vein becomes weak and can rupture. Lie on back. Lift leg up, apply pressure. ...Read more

What would be the cause of burning and stinging from shoulders down to fingers?

What would be the cause of burning and stinging from shoulders down to fingers?

What are some possible causes for veins in my fingers to become more visible?

What are some possible causes for veins in my fingers to become more visible?

Heat and hydration.: The size of the veins in the hands and fingers change constantly. The most common reasons for hand and finger veins to increase would be hydration and vasodilation from heat or increased physical exertion. There is also an aging component where the veins would dilate as the tissue volume decreases but this should not be the case in a 24 year old. I do not think that you need to worry about this. ...Read more

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Weakened vein walls: It is normal for hand veins to become thinner (and therefore more prone to bruising marks, i.e."bursting") as you age. The skin overlying the hand veins also thins rather dramatically with older age, making the veins more prone to bruising w/ mild trauma. Blood thinners, such as Aspirin or plavix, (clopidogrel) increases the incidence of this. I expect the veins are not "diseased" and should not be treated. ...Read more

Could second degree burns to the fingers cause long term pain?

Could second degree burns to the fingers cause long term pain?
