Bleeding Varicose Veins

Untreated vein disease may lead to spontaneous bleeding from superficial veins in the leg, a result of elevated pressure due to venous insufficiency (reflux). This condition stems from the backward flow of blood into the leg veins against gravity, weakening both the veins and skin over time. Even minor injuries to the affected area can cause substantial bleeding. Warm water exposure, softening the skin and dilating superficial veins, may trigger bleeding. In the event of spontaneous bleeding, immediate measures, such as leg elevation, applying pressure, and seeking prompt medical assistance, are crucial.

Without intervention, vein disease progresses, and spontaneous bleeding serves as a serious indicator of underlying issues. If you've experienced such bleeding, contact us promptly at 615.716.VEIN to schedule an appointment with Dr. Reynolds.
