Broken blood vessels in feet?

My sister has had a problem for the past few months with what looks like small broken blood vessels under the skin on the tops and sides of her feet. They are red and look like a rash under the skin. Her feet do not itch; occasionally are swollen a little. She has also developed a ganglion cyst on the top of her right foot. It's about 1 1/2 inches in length, does not hurt and is soft to the touch. She is most concerned about the broken blood vessels--her feet look red and discolored. Any ideas?

Re: Broken blood vessels in feet?

Excpt for the swelling, it almost sounds like me....My feet have the rash under the skin, but the "rash" is on the inside and arch of the feet. Weird. All I know is that the "rash" seems to be like petechiae and it freaks me out because that means something awful. I haven't been to a dr because I am a chicken. Let me know how your sister makes out. It sounds like she may have vasculitis to me, but if the rash isn't raised I cannot be certain.
