Venous disease is the main cause of over two-thirds of leg ulcers and some people are at a higher risk of developing complications with their legs and feet.
It’s important to always check your legs and feet for any skin changes such as varicose veins, spider veins or venous eczema, as well as checking for swollen ankles and tired achy legs.
Our common conditions section can help you identify if you have any symptoms.
If any of these signs and symptoms do occur make sure you visit your GP, nurse or pharmacist.
