Spider Veins: Not Always a Cosmetic Issue

spider-veinsIf you have them, you’ve probably noticed these smaller, pink and blue veins that form clusters that resemble spider webs. Spider veins usually appear on the thighs, calves, ankles, and feet.

These little veins can be unsightly, but they can also cause symptoms such as burning, itching, stinging, throbbing or aching around the veins or vein clusters. If you’ve noticed these symptoms, then your spider veins may be due to venous insufficiency.
