How can a blown and collapsed vein post IV administration be treated?

Thank you for your quick response. I have a really hard time having an IV put in my arm. My veins roll, blow collapse whatever, they try so many times I can't stand it. At that point I am begging for them to numb the area before they stick me again and 99% of the doctors tell me they can't do that. Is there a high risk or what is the deal
Thanks Donna
