I noticed this near my left armpit area about a month ago, and thought it may be an ugly bruise. Now it still remains and I also have noticed the same marks appearing on my inner and outer thighs. I am experiencing no pain, I live a moderately healthy life to include exercise and a decent intake of fruits, vegetables, and dairy daily, but regardless these marks do not subside. I can think of no hereditary skin conditions in my family except for skin cancer, but these are no cancerous marks like I have ever seen before. They resemble veins, but are not the regular blue tint. They look like the red marks you get from resting your arm or leg on something for awhile and then lift up. Please shed some light on this, so that I can have some idea of what I am dealing with.
I was searching on the internet for the problem that I am having and I came across your message. I too, seem to have a similar if not the same problem as you described. I have red marks on my body that seem to resemble veins and stretch marks. I have them on my inner thighs, my side area, and some on my underarm. I also noticed that some are beginning to form on my biceps. I was just wondering if you did find out what it was and what there is to do to cure this? Needless to say, it is very alarming to see these marks, but is it something that I need to be alarmed about? Please let me know of any information concerning this. Thank you.
red veins appeared on inner thigh after niacin dose
what was it? i have it on my right inner thigh. i did a big dose of niacin and during the flush i did a bit of scratching. it's not scratch marks, more like i ruptured or strained blood lines.
or it could be deep vein thrombosis, are you guys still ...here?
