Should I talk to my doctor about my stasis dermatitis symptoms?

Because stasis dermatitis is related to your circulation, you may want to talk to your doctor about your symptoms. Stasis dermatitis may indicate an underlying circulatory problem. In addition, stasis dermatitis can result in open sores, which may become infected, so getting the proper treatment is important.
