A hot and “burning” sensation on the leg’s skin is often the sign of the common but serious vein problem “Venous Reflux.” Hot and burning leg skin is often uncomfortable, painful, and can negatively impact an individual’s quality of life. To determine if your hot and burning leg skin sensation is from vein problems, the first step is to schedule a Hot And Burning Leg Skin Consultation with the vein specialists at Mountcastle Vein Centers. Please read the information below to learn more on how vein problems may be causing your hot and burning leg skin sensation.
Hot and burning leg skin is often caused when leg veins do not properly circulate blood back towards the heart. Sometimes, leg veins fail and the blood that does not properly circulate to the heart often pools and remains in the leg. The excess blood in the failed veins then makes the veins swell, and the swollen veins can leak blood and fluid into the surrounding tissue of the leg.
This blood and fluid that has leaked into the surrounding tissue of the leg often causes skin discoloration, itching, and inflammation of the leg tissue. This inflammation and leakage of the blood and fluid into the leg tissue can cause the leg skin to feel a hot or burning sensation.
The vein problem “Venous Reflux” that often causes the veins to fail and causes the hot and burning sensation to be experienced is now easily treated with modern vein procedures. To cure this hot and burning sensation, the veins that do not properly circulate blood to the heart must be properly treated. Modern vein procedures performed at Mountcastle Vein Centers are non-surgical, require little to no downtime, and are often covered by insurance.
