popped blood vessels in face
My daughter has had a popped blood vessel on her cheek under her right eye since she was 5 years old. She is now 7 years old, and recently  I have noticed 2 more popped blood vessels on her right side. Another one has appeared on her cheek and the other has appeared on the right side of her nose.
I have been debating seeing a dermatologists about this. Is there anything I can do to help them go away, or should I contact a dermatologist and have her looked at?

Hello,
From the symptoms these sound like superficial veins or telangiectasia. Superficial veins are visible in normal fair skinned persons. Telangiectasia 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 laser treatment are the two main treatment options. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
