How To Get Rid Of Varicose Eczema


If you have varicose eczema this video will
tell you what you need to know and what you need to do to get rid of it. Varicose eczema is important. It is a warning
sign that you have a serious problem with the vein circulation. If neglected it can
progress onto become a leg ulcer causing pain, odour and disability. Leg ulcers can be a
recurring problem and may involve prolonged treatment to get them healed. So taking action
before they develop, that is when varicose eczema starts is well worth it. So why do you have varicose eczema. Well first
of all, let me put a few things straight for you. This condition is NOT REALLY an eczema
— a skin problem- nor is it ACTUALLY caused by varicose veins. The term arose before we
fully understood the true nature of the problem. So IN REALLITY varicose eczema can develop
in the absence of SURFACE varicose veins and unlike TRUE skin problems it should not be
managed solely by dermatologists. The true nature of varicose eczema is a malfunction
of the veins of the legs causing inflammation and scarring of the skin. So problems with
the deep veins such as a blockage from a deep vein thrombosis or back flow in the superficial
veins – called reflux can cause varicose eczema. Varicose eczema only develops on the
legs and it is always associated with leg vein malfunction. If you have eczema on a
different part of your body, IT IS NOT VARICOSE ECZEMA you should see a dermatologist. Now to part you really want to know. How can
you get rid of varicose eczema. Varicose eczema is important so get is sorted out quickly.
Don’t delay seeking help. The longer you have varicose eczema the more likely you are
to get an ulcer. Request an assessment by a vein specialist and request a duplex ultrasound
scan to look at the leg veins in detail. A scan will detect the exact vein abnormality
and the results of the scan will form the basis of the plan for curative treatment.
Antibiotics, creams and ointments are almost never needed. In fact they can make things
worse. In particular avoid steroid creams thin the skin. Although steroid creams provide
very welcome relief, they mask the symptoms of skin irritation, thin the skin and actually
make a leg ulcer more likely in the long run. So here are my top tips. Get help as soon
as you have varicose eczema, request an assessment by a vein specialist including a vein duplex
scan and get the underlying vein problem diagnosed and dealt with as soon as possible. If you would like more information and help

    So far I have watched 4 of your videos about venous ulcers, and varicose eczema. I was hoping you would give some information as to what people can actually apply to the ulcers to aid in healing the ulcer. Also what if anything would be good to apply to the thickened skin around the ankle. Sadly, none of that information is here or on any of your videos. When a person has an open ulcer, they must apply some type of wound dressing and covering before they can bandage or wear compression socks. The drainage from the ulcer must be controlled. You do not even mention this. You video certainly DOES NOT state what GETS RID OF VARICOSE ECZEMA.

    Hi my mother in law is suffering from VARICOSE VEIN problems for such a long time. The doctors were treating her with so many antibiotics, steroids and ointments; even few years ago she had an operation for this. But now things got worse & now she has ulcers on one of her legs. It looks like the ulcer is spreading.

    But the thing is, in this vedio you mentioned that if the symptoms are not only on the lower legs then it isn't varicose veins. My mother in law was admitted in the hospital and the doctors said it's varicose eczema. She is in so much pain, from her ulcers sticky watery stuff comes out and within few days same symptoms have spreaded on all over her body. Could you please guide us what should we do. Many thanks.
