Hiya,

so I've noticed earlier today that I have little red veins on my legs, varicus veins if im not mistaken.

Is there any way in which I can prevent more from appearing and getting rid of the ones that have already appeared?

Thanks

I have a little patch where I have little red/purple veins coming out like some kind of birds eye view of a city... It's strange.

I have no idea how you can prevent them or get rid of them, though!

My friend's mum had these BIG TIME.
The only way she managed to get rid of them was by tightly binding her legs in bandages. I think they do it some surgical way, so I'm probably totally wrong

Yup, laser treatment is expensive. Looks like these things will be on my legs for a long time then .

I think they are more likely to be tiny burst capalaries (spider veins) rather than Var.Veins. Generally V.Veins are painful and caused by excessive walking or pressure and it is more common for severely overweight people to have them.
With varicus veins there can be swelling of the feet, aches and pains of the legs , dicolouration around the skin where the veins are. You may well have them but I doubt it because you call them 'little red veins' well varicus veins are usually purpleyred and larger and come with pain.

could be what generally happens to people who are exposed to harsh wheather conditions or have been at some point. Such as over exposure to the sun or wind/rain. Sounds like broken blood vassals under the skin, i'm assuming there's quite a few of them and they are tiny and thin lines? lots of people get them

They're very unlikely to be varicose veins which are long tortuous fat bluey/brown discoloured veins running down your leg. Do a google image to compare.

Also image google spider naevus and telangiectasia and see if one of them look like what you've got

you can get them destroyed via an injection at a clinic. They inject a chemical into one of the veins and it slowly gets rid of the entire clump of surface veins in that section. I think I saw it on that embarrassing illnesses program on channel 4....the lady had the spider veins quite bad but it did get rid of them and she didn't flinch around the table either so if you don't mind needles then you can get it sorted. I've got them too...and super pale skin...but I'm really not that bothered about them

That sounds like a decent method. Well right now they aren't too bad, but im worried they'l get out of hand.

first off, think! What colour is oxygenated blood? Red. What colour is deoxygenated blood? purply-blue. What do veins carry (I know this isnt a be all and end all rule but humour me)? Deoxygenated blood.

Quite simply put if its red and on your legs then unless something is really wrong it cannot be varicose veins. Also if you see varicose veins they look rather distinct, sometimes like youve got a snake or something under your skin. Most unpleasant I assure you. Id probably agree that its some sort of ruptured capillaries, though without seeing it I cannot be sure.

As ever, best bet is to go see a doctor! Someone who is paid to look at this sort of thing!

its spider veins that can be destroyed by the injection...they're purple. Varicose veins are well different like you said....they can be surgically removed but can end up coming back worse...some women get them from childbirth due to the pressures and strains on the body
