Varicose veins are simply enlarged veins that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. In appearance they can be dark purple or blue, twisted and bulging and are commonly found on the back of calves or on the inside of the leg. Varicose veins develop when valves in the veins that carry blood to the heart stop working properly, they get chocked or blocked leading to conditions like venous stasis (blood clots in veins). Predisposing factors are prolonged standing, malignancy (tumor or cancer), adiposity (fatty body matter), pregnancy or reduced body movement or immobilization. If not treated it may complicate into phlebitis (inflammation of the walls of the vein) and thrombosis (local clotting of blood). Chronic insufficiency of venous system may lead to skin pigmentation, oedema, formation of scaly eruption which are eczema like and ulceration may occur
