Re: Broken Blood Vessels

Aahme, just want to say hi and welcome. How are you doing since your recent diagnosis?

Re: broken blood vessels, I have a lot around both ankles. My rheumatologist said it's cutaneous vasculitis (which isn't the same as systemic vasculitis, which would be far more worrisome). I don't think the cutaneous form of vasculitis typically poses a problem, other than possibly causing some burning & itchy sensations---UNLESS skin ulcerates, in which case patients should consult their doctors ASAP. (All I've had to do in many years is keep an eye on that skin, and so far, so good.)

Anyway, I hope this finds you doing well. Best wishes to you, Vee
