Varicose Eczema – The Truth about the causes and treatment that can prevent leg ulcers


Hello, I am Dr Haroun Gajraj Director of the
VeinCare Centres in the South West of England. I am going to tell you the truth about varicose
eczema. You see a lot of people believe that it is a dermatological condition, a skin condition
that should be treated by dermatologists or with creams. Well it is an inflammation and
some doctors treat it with steroid cream. Now this is just not acceptable and it is
completely wrong. You see, the cause of varicose eczema is not varicose veins or inflammation,
it is actually a condition called superficial vein reflux which causes varicose eczema.
And, it is the superficial vein reflux that needs to be treated. Steroid creams just mask
the problem. In fact, if you use steroids for a long time, they can actually damage
the skin, making it thin and more vulnerable to damage. So if you have varicose eczema
and you are being treated by steroid creams, go and see your doctor and ask to see a vein
specialist. I have treated many people with varicose eczema and if it is caught at an
early stage, it can be cured completely. Steroid creams just mask the problem. Now if you are
troubled by varicose eczema, I would be interested to hear from you. You are very welcome to
contact us by email or via the contact form and I would be very happy to answer any questions
that you have. Thank you for watching the Truth about Varicose Eczema.
