A common symptom of venous disease is itching or burning in the legs. This can be caused by an inflammatory reaction within the soft tissues surrounding veins that are not functioning properly. If left untreated, this itching can lead to dry scaling skin and may develop into a rash or an ulcer. If you are experiencing itching or burning of the legs, even without the presence of varicose veins, you may have underlying venous disease. Because of the risks of leaving this untreated, it is recommended to be evaluated by a vein expert at Charlotte Vein as soon as possible if suffering from these symptoms.
