How To Get Rid Of Varicose Veins?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. Last year I injected to get rid of varicose veins, then a bruise appeared after a few days was gone, but after the bruise was gone, a brownish line appeared until now. Is there a way to get rid of it? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Varicose veins occur when veins in the lower limbs disrupt the function of the valve, causing a lot of blood to accumulate in the lower limbs and it is difficult to return to the heart. This condition is characterized by the appearance of reddish or bluish twisting streaks originating from enlarged veins. These complaints often arise especially when you have been standing for a long time or walking long distances. Not only that, varicose veins can also make the skin feel itchy, painful, hot like burning, swelling, and even skin color can also change.
Handling of varicose veins can be done in various ways. Varicose injection you are referring to may refer to sclerotherapy, which is an injection of fluid or foam that causes scar tissue to form in the veins that cause varicose veins. One of the side effects of this action is in the form of bruises which generally disappear within a few days after the action. However, in the long run, hyperpigmentation can also appear that creates a blackish line as you experience it. Often, the black line after sclerotherapy is not a dangerous condition. However, if this complaint is really bothering you, you can check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given the appropriate treatment. Some therapeutic modalities, such as giving special creams, lasers, and so on, can be done by doctors in order to overcome your complaints.
At home, the following steps can be done:
Take care of personal hygiene, including by bathing and washing your feet diligently and cleanly
Do not carelessly rub anything on the feet that appear brown lines
Drink plenty of water, and eat vegetables and fruit so the skin looks brighter and the brown lines fade
Avoid the risk of recurrent varicose veins by maintaining ideal body weight, exercising regularly, avoiding the use of high heels, avoiding the use of clothes and tight pants, and avoiding sitting or standing too long
Hope this helps ...
