A tender red area develops around the veins on the skin and the red area follows the line of the vein. The area may become hard, warm, swollen and itchy. It could throb or burn. There may also be a fever. The symptoms are most present in the morning or when the leg is lowered.

Usually leg pain, itching, swelling, and then actual skin ulcers. Edema is almost always present. If you haven't seen an MD and been properly diagnosed, please do so. Elevating the legs can decrease the discomfort, as well as using ointments if you have ulcers form. Hydrocortisone (as a cream or taking an OTC allergy pill) can help the itching.
