Venous stasis dermatitis happens when there’s a problem with veins which keep the blood from moving through very well, usually in the lower legs. As more fluid and pressure build, some of the blood leaks out of your veins and into your skin. The condition is also called venous eczema or stasis dermatitis. It’s more common in people who are 50 or older but can be found in any age group.
