Telangactasia

April 8th, 2011 by Jennifer Lee

This is a very harmless condition however having this condition can be quite far reaching.

Telangactasia are dialated vessels that show through the skin. They often look like red dots however they are vascular so this means that with any pressure applied to the spots they should dissapear.

Having Telangactasia can often mean nothing significiant but it also depends on where they are at on your body. Spider Veins is a common telangactasia that is usually harmless.

However having these spots on your head, the inside your mouth, or on your hands is very indicative of Limited Systemic Scleroderma. 
You can also get telangactasia in a few other auto-immune diseases as well
1. Lupus (SLE)
2. Scleroderma
3. Dermamyositis

Just one of the many tiny symptoms that can lead to a huge headache
