Take care of your health and make sure that you will never suffer from a pulmonary embolism. This condition occurs when a blood clot detaches and travels to the lungs.
See the doctor to find out if you have a blood clot in the deep veins of your legs and get a treatment as soon as possible.
The area around the blood clot may differ in color. It is slightly discolored which is a sign that you have a clot deep in a vein. This type of discoloration occurs when too much blood accumulates under the surface of your skin. The bigger the clot, the more visible the symptom is. Another thing that proves that you have an issue is when you notice persistent patches of red skin. This is particularly common after surgery or injury. It is not that easy to make redness go away even after a longer period of time. It is always advisable to see a specialist to know what to do.
