What Is Varicose Vains?
Varicose veins are small, yellow-brown, veins that grow in the feet of animals that are dead.
Varicose veins often run through your feet, but some are located above the heel. The veins are usually in the upper, or outer part of the foot. Some are visible on a foot X-ray and others are on an ultrasound. Some are not visible, but still present a danger to feet and calves.
Varicose vains can be very painful for people who have them. The pain is caused by a blood clot or other blockage, and it causes the blood to stay in the veins instead of circulating through the bloodstream.
Many people with varicose vains don't know it, but they are usually treated by placing an anesthetic cream over the veins and keeping them open until they can be drained with a local anesthetic. If the veins can't be drained and there is any pain, you can also apply a local anesthetic cream to the varicose veins, so they can drain themselves. If it hurts much, it's probably a bad varicose vein. If you don't have varicose vains, you can do the anesthetic on your own. However, don't apply the cream to your feet or legs; just apply it to the sides of the legs, feet, or feet of someone else who is also using a local anesthetic.
