The doctor warned about the danger of sunburn with varicose veins

With varicose veins, it is recommended to hide your legs from direct sunlight. On Tuesday, July 26, the surgeon-phlebologist of the Pirogov City Clinical Hospital No. 1 Armen Avakyan warned about this in an interview with Sputnik radio.

He noted that otherwise, a summer tan could be deadly.

According to the doctor, the walls of blood vessels already injured by varicose veins can become even more inflamed when sunburned. As a result, this can lead to serious complications.

Avakyan explained that in warm weather, blood circulation slows down, if at the same time spider veins become noticeable on the legs, then it is better not to delay contacting a doctor.

The specialist emphasized that when the venous wall is heated, it heats up, which leads to inflammation. Subsequently, inflammation is thrombophlebitis, which can give complications, turn into deep vein thrombosis, which is already deadly.

On June 28, a general practitioner, chief physician of Invitro-Privolzhye, Tatyana Neumolotova, told Izvestia that sunburn due to improper tanning can provoke the development of melanoma, as well as cause premature aging and age spots.

According to her, in order not to harm the skin and get the maximum benefit from the sun’s rays, it is recommended to sunbathe in the morning from 7:00 to 10:00 or in the afternoon from 17:00 to 19:00.
