4 Things to do if your Varicose Veins are Bleeding

If you have varicose veins and they start to bleed this is what you need to do.

 

  1. Try not to panic. It often looks worst than it is, especially if it shoots out everywhere.
  2. Grab a wash towel or even a paper towel, make it into a small square and then place it on top of the area where it is bleeding.
  3. Hold it in that area with one finger and not your entire palm
  4. This is important. Do not peek and keep it held down for 15 minutes

 

If it does not stop bleeding, seek medical assistance.
