    Exclamation strange red marks appearing everywhere...please help!

    im 17 years old and recently i have been noticing these red marks on my upper thigh, breasts, and butt. They look kind of like stretch marks but, in the places, they are im almost positive they're not. They are under the skin, but feel bumpy to the touch...they are shaped like lines (like the way a vein would look on the surface)...could they be burst blood vessels or something? im really scared that they will spread all over my body...or could it mean poor blood circulation or something?? please if anyone has any ideas let me know

    There is no way that we can tell you what this is from your discription, however, Sometimes when a person gains weight suddenly, like being pregnant, it will cause stretch marks to appear. They turn red at first from the skin having to stretch across enlarged tissues, then after the swelling goes down, the marks sometimes fade away or fade to a silvery streak that does not go away. But unless you are having an allergic reaction to something that you know you are allergic to, then go see your doctor if you are afraid it is something important.

    If I were you, I would go at get my blood tested. Just to rule out some stuff. Your platlette count could be really low, and you might just need something to bring the plaltette level up.

    Re: strange red marks appearing everywhere...please help!

    Those sound like "spider veins". I got them at your age also. All part of the wonderful post-puberty stuff. They are very common and not usually serious, but you may want to be checked out by a doctor anyway. Woman commonly get them in "fatty" areas. Breasts, thighs, calves, stomach, etc. Do a search and see if this sounds right...Good luck...

    Question Re: strange red marks appearing everywhere...please help!

    I am 21 and have those same red marks on only one buttocks cheek. It is now spreading to my left cheek. I have tried some stretch mark creams, but they have not made one difference. I have not gained any weight..so how could they be stretch marks? I am beginning to think it is a curculation issue...not stretch marks...

    HELP!
