What is thrombophlebitis?

Thrombophlebitis is inflammation of blood vessels that causes a blood clot to form and block one or more veins, usually in the legs. This can occur in surface veins or deep veins.

Symptoms of thrombophlebitis

  • Skin hardening

  • Swelling of the affected area

  • Pain in the arms and/or legs

Questions your doctor may ask to check for thrombophlebitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose thrombophlebitis

  • Do you have hardening of the skin?

  • Is the affected area swollen?

  • Do you have pain in your arms and/or legs?

Treatment for thrombophlebitis

Surface vein thrombophlebitis is usually treated with anti Inflammatory medications and antibiotics. Application of compression using compressive garments and limb elevation provides relief. The clot in the deep veins might need additional treatment with blood-thinning drugs.
