Do spider veins itch? If yes, why?
Is itching a symptom of spider veins? I often find myself scratching my lower legs, mostly in the area where I've got the most broken capillaries. Does anyone know if it has something to do with them?
I got sclerotherapy for the treatment of spider veins. Spider veins and varicose veins are related, and a symptom is itching and slight discomfort. I also experience restless leg syndrome from the varicose veins and other vein issues. You may be experiencing other symptoms that you're not recognizing, but if you see a specialist you can have them treated really quickly. Most insurance covers the treatment, and the procedure involves just a few injections.
I recommend that you see a vein specialist for treatment to remove the veins. The itching and your symptoms may continue to get worse without treatment. The area was a little uncomfortable for the next few days, but the veins just disappeared. I hope you can do a follow-up post if you have the treatment done to share your experience.
