Due to the fact that there's blood clotting inside it or the blood vessel walls are damaged, the blood vessel becomes inflamed. Shallow thrombophlebitis is the term for an inflamed capillary near the surface area of the skin caused by a blood embolism. Symptoms of surface thrombophlebitis consist of: excruciating hard swellings underneath the skin; redness of the skin. Surface thrombophlebitis in a leg is not usually major. The blood embolism usually removes and the inflammation wanes within a couple of weeks. Most people with superficial thrombophlebitis are otherwise well.
