If varicose veins are left untreated they may go on to cause increasing degrees of pressure on the skin in their vicinity. This can lead to swelling, skin irritation, skin infection (cellulitis), blister formation and, in the worst case, breakdown of the skin, with development of ulcers. Treatment may be as simple as wearing compression stockings on a regular basis.

Dr. Klein encourages you to schedule a consultative appointment with his Plano, TX vein specialist office to determine the severity of your varicose veins and possible treatments.
