Brief Answer:
Get color Doppler done

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
Probably you have developed varicose veins.
It happens due to accumulation of blood in veins.
Please get a color Doppler of leg done.
This will help in finding out the cause.
Treatment modality can be decided based on the investigation report.
It will not go on its own.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
