Small red and blue veins on shoulders and across back.
I have noticed over the last few months I have small red and blue veins across my shoulders and back.
I have not revently been in the sun.
I do have a tendancy of burning when I do though, so try and always wear a high sun screen.
They do not hurt to touch or anything, I am just wondering wether I should go and get them seen to?

I realise my photo is not very good quality.

Hello,
From the picture that you have clicked,these look like telangiectasia.They are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes.It can be due to venous hypertension,sun or cold exposure,skin trauma,carcinoid syndrome or CREST syndrome.

Sclerotherapy and lser treatment are the two main treatment options.Pls discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist.

I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
