What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but on a smaller scale. Spider veins may be closer to the skin than varicose veins may be. Spider veins may be red or blue in color and appear like spider webs or have a tree branch effect. They are usually located on the arms or face and can appear in small areas as well as cover large areas. Spider veins may appear at any age in both men and women.
Symptoms of Spider Veins
A number of factors may contribute to spider veins such as weight gain, pregnancy, hormones, as well as prolonged standing or sitting. Spider veins are usually harmless, but can have the following symptoms in more severe cases:
- Aching in the affected area
