Bulging Vein after intravenous
Hi Doc, two weeks ago my husband (33 years old) had an IV inserted through his left hand vena on the wrist (below the thumb) for 8 days.
He was treated for typhoid and liver function disturbance.
Since he left hospital 2 weeks ago, the vein is bulging and somewhat movable when touched.
- Is it some kind of phlebitis / varicose / ... ?
- Does it need treatment ?
- What can I do to reduce its swelling ?
Please help. Thank you so much...

Hi,
As mentioned from your other post, your husband's symptoms can indeed be due to phlebitis or vein inflammation. For proper diagnosis, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Ultrasound and complete physical examination is important. Take care and best regards.
