red veiny specks on chest

5914294?1279205848
I have red veiny looking specks all over my chest, a few on my neck and arms.  They kind of look like spider veins, but if I sweat they itch.  Some even have what feel like pimples, but do not have a "head"(if that makes any sense at all)  I have only started getting them about 2 yrs ago.  Other than the occasional itching and unsightliness they don't really bother me.  My Mom had the same thing for as long as I can remember.  I guess they never bothered her as she never sought medical advice or treatment.  If anyone knows anything about this anomoly, please post any and all answers.  Thank you.

I  think it's hereditary, I have it, my brother and sister has it.  Our father had it.  We also all have vericose veins, I would guess it's part of that problem.  I wouldn't give it a thought as a cardiac issue.
