Hello and sorry for the late reply. Varicose veins can cause discoloration of the skin. But if there is itching, it could be due to an allergic reaction. The other causes could be due to a fungal infection, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis and scabies. Usually there is itching and some amount of inflammation with these conditions. You will need to consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you can take OTC Benadryl. Regards.
