Leg : Leg symptoms that increase with standing (swelling, itching, bulging veins, pain, and--possibly--welts as you describe) suggest a problem with blood flow out of the leg.

When they let blood flow the wrong way, down the leg, you get the symptoms listed above. The best way to sort this out is to have your legs evaluated with ultrasound. An ultrasound study is really the only way to know whether the valves are working normally and whether there's some kind of blockage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
