Varicose and Spider Veins – Should me and my spouse see a doctor about varicose veins?

Author GreatDad Writers

Should me and my spouse see a doctor about varicose veins?


 


The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recommends that you ask these important questions about your wife when deciding whether to see the doctor:


 


Has the varicose vein become swollen, red, or very tender or warm to the touch?



  • If yes, see your doctor.
  • If no, are there sores or a rash on the leg or near the ankle with the varicose vein, or does your spouse think there may be circulation problems in her feet?

    • If yes, see your doctor.
    • If no, continue to maintain self-care.
