What Causes Veins?
Spider veins are red, blue, or purple in color and often make their debut on your legs, especially on the calves, thighs, and ankles. They are usually tiny and cosmetic in nature, meaning there are rarely any medical concerns associated with them. However, if your spider veins are on your ankles, you may want to get them checked out as they may be a symptom of a more serious condition.
Varicose veins, on the other hand, are swollen and enlarged veins. They are typically the result of weakened or damaged veins from aging, pregnancy, prolonged standing, hormonal changes, and/or heavy lifting. They can lead to medical issues such as ulcers and should be resolved.
