What are spider and varicose veins?
Varicose veins are large raised, swollen blood vessels which are visible through the skin. Usually located in the legs, this condition can be painful and cause leg cramps. Spider veins also occur most often in the legs, though can be seen in the face and neck area as well. They are smaller than varicose veins and normally red, purple or blue in color. Both conditions are hereditary and occur in individuals who are obese, on their feet for long periods of time and suffer from other medical issues. Spider and varicose veins occur in women more often than men, though some males also suffer from the condition.
