Venous and lymphatic disease both result in skin changes to the lower limb. These range from early disease signs such as mild oedema and dry skin, to varicose veins, leg ulceration and chronic oedema in the later stages. Patients at all stages of disease progression are commonly encountered in the community and compression hosiery plays a key role in the prevention and management of skin changes.
