Both thread veins and varicose veins are relatively common conditions. But what’s the difference between the two? Here are a few factors
|Smaller veins or capillaries||Large and twisted blood vessels|
|Can be a group of veins, looking like spider web||Tends to be fewer but larger|
|Red or bluish colour||Blue/purplish colour|
|Not considered a medical issue||Can cause discomfort, pain, itching, skin conditions and more|
|Can appear on the face or body (most common on the legs)||Appear on the legs|
|Lack of skin and vein elasticity causes the veins to become more visible through the skin||Malfunctioning valves cause blood to back up and distort the vein|
