Venous eczema – recommended by dermatologist. Red skin with some areas of breakdown. A history of skin irritation and itch in the right lower anterior shin for several years. She has had intermittent relief from steroid medication but also some skin irritation from the steroid medication.
“Rash appearing on one of my lower legs and have aching legs all the time. Dermatologist advised me the rash is a result of varicose veins.”

From Dr Matar: “In treating patients with venous eczema it has been my experience that dramatic symptomatic improvement can occur within 24 to 48 hours of treatment and skin healing is often accomplished within several weeks of treatment.”
At follow-up two weeks post treatment her symptoms of heaviness and aching had resolved and her venous eczema was improving markedly. 6 months after initial treatment her lower limb rash had markedly improved from her original presentation and she was asymptomatic. She reported complete relief of heaviness and aching in her legs. Excellent reduction in the visible veins and complete resolution of the prior right shin skin changes of venous eczema.
