Itching legs and leg eczema is often the sign of the common but serious vein problem “Venous Reflux.” Itching legs and leg eczema is characterized by itchy, red and swollen, dry and flaky, and scaly or crusty leg skin. The vein problem “Venous Reflux” that often causes itching legs and leg eczema is now easily treated with modern vein procedures.
To determine if your itching legs and leg eczema are from vein problems, the first step is to schedule an Itching Legs And Leg Eczema 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 itching legs and leg eczema.
Itching legs and leg eczema are often caused by “Venous Reflux,” when leg veins fail and do not properly circulate blood back to the heart. When leg veins fail and do not properly circulate the blood, this blood pools and remains in the leg veins. These leg veins then swell with the excess blood and often leak blood and fluid into the surrounding leg tissue. Itching legs and leg eczema are thought to be an immune response from the body to this abnormal excess blood and fluid in the leg tissue.
To treat itching legs and leg eczema, the failed veins that cause this excess blood and fluid to leak into the leg tissue must first be treated. Modern vein procedures at Mountcastle Vein Centers are non-surgical, require little to no downtime, and are often covered by insurance. Vein procedures to treat these failed veins include EVLT Laser Procedure, Sclerotherapy, and Ambulatory Phlebectomy.
