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.
