When a blood embolism forms in one of your blood vessels and slows down the blood circulation in the capillary, thrombophlebitis is. This is what makes DVTs are more dangerous than superficial blood vessel apoplexy. If the blood flow to among your veins is slowed down as a result of an embolism, you might have: Red, puffy, and irritated skin around the affected area; Pain or inflammation that worsens when you tax the affected area; A puffy capillary that really feels like a hard "cord" under your skin; Pain when bending your ankle joint; A swollen foot or ankle. Thrombophlebitis may affect much deeper, bigger capillaries or veins near the skin surface. A pacemaker catheter that has been travelled through the vein in the groin; Bed rest or sitting in one setting for too long such as plane travel; Family background of embolism, which might indicate the existence of acquired disorders that lead to increased risk of embolisms. The affected blood vessel could be near the surface of the skin or deep within a muscular tissue. Reasons for thrombophlebitis consist of injury, surgical treatment or prolonged lack of exercise. DVT increases the risk of significant illness. It's usually treated with blood-thinning medicines. Shallow thrombophlebitis is sometimes treated with blood-thinning medications, too. When a blood vessel close to the surface of the skin is affected, you could see a red, hard cable just under the surface area of the skin that's tender to the touch. When a deep vein in the leg is affected, the leg might end up being swollen, tender and uncomfortable.
