During the month of August we will see some of the hottest days of the year so it is a good time to understand how the heat affects your veins.
Heat can play a role in why your veins are so visible. With increased temperatures, veins will dilate and expand. This expansion adds stress to the vein wall and can be painful or crampy. With blood pooling under the skin from hot weather, you may notice blue ropey looking veins on your hands. It is always a good time to consider having your veins checked by a specialist. Not only will you feel better you will look better!
