Should you be worried if your varicose veins bleed?

If your varicose vein bleeds because you hit it on something then this may not be as concerning. As they generally protrude from the skin they are always prone to get knocked causing bruising mostly and bleeding other times.

 

If your varicose vein bleeds on its own or is starting to become a small wound also known as an ulcer, then you should be concerned and this needs to be treated on a more urgent timeline.

 

Regardless if it is the first or second scenario treatment is warranted for both as it has a tendency to keep occurring and can be distressing when it does.
