Let me start off by saying that I have somewhat pale skin, but it's not all that pale when my skin is normal you can't see my veins at all. But often times it will turn Quite bluish/purple, for no apparent reason. It has been doing this for as long as I can remember, and I have no Idea why this happens.
What could this possibly be?

Is your skin a mottled in appearance? But the coloration wouldn't be from veins it is called Livedo Reticularis. I have the condition.
