Skin Darkening and Varicose Veins

Itching is one of the commonest symptoms that occurs when you have varicose veins. It tends to occur in around the varicose veins early on.

For some they have no itching but they do notice the skin becoming darker. This is known as pigmentation and signifies that your vein condition is becoming more severe.

It occurs as a result of blood leaking out of your veins and staining the skin.

If left untreated, the pigmentation or skin darkening will progressively worsen and the skin may never come back to normal even after treatment.
