moistureIs the skin on your legs ashy? While most people will generally just assume they are not properly hydrated and need to drink more water or use a better moisturizing lotion if found in conjunction with other signs and symptoms it may indicate an underlying venous deficiency.

How to tell the difference between dry skin and vein disease

If ashiness presents itself only in the drier fall and winter seasons as the temperatures drop and the humidity leaves the air you may indeed just have dry winter skin. Up your water intake, eat healthy fats daily and use lotion.

If, however, you also find your legs to be achy, swollen, itchy, red, or you can visibly see bluish or purple veins through the surface layer of your skin you may need to consult with a vein specialist.

Through screening procedures they can tell if you have vein issues and to what extent. Once properly diagnosed recommendations can be made as to the best course of treatment will help you the most.

Most procedures that help alleviate the pain and appearance of varicose and spider veins are done in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. Patients report very little discomfort and have a very high level of satisfaction with many remarking that they only wish they had done it sooner.

Stop leg pain, varicose and spider veins in their tracks before it is too late. Life is meant to be lived in health and with mobility. Living in pain isn’t necessary.

Ashy skin may be unsightly, but it also can indicate an underlying issue and it is important to have yourself checked. One of the very best ways to do that is with a screening through The West Florida Vein Center (727) 712-3233 www.westlforidaveincenter.com
