Why are my Ankles a Darker Colour with Varicose Veins?

A common presentation when varicose veins progress is pigmentation.

This is often seen as a darker staining of the skin especially around the ankles. If you were fair skinned it can look like a brown tanned look. If you are darker skinned it can also look black or a deep brown.

 

Unfortunately when skin changes like pigmentation start progressing, it can be very difficult to get rid of it even when the varicose veins are treated.
