Lately, I have noticed the appearance of strange veins in my skin.
They are very small and resemble those which you would see in the skin
of heavy smokers and drinkers, which , according to my knowledge,
appear because of oxygen deprevation resulting from their poor habits. In
my case they aren't red, but blue. I am perplexed that I have this
problem because I have a very healthy life style. I eat foods which
are good for me, such as fruits and other vegetables. Simply put, I
avoid fatty foods etc. I also exercise very frequently. I go to a rock
climbing gym 4 times a week. I do not smoke, and I drink about one
glass of wine every 3 months.
These veins are appearing on my shoulders, just beneath my
pectoral muscles, and on my ankles. I also think they're popping up
around my upper back, though I can't see for sure.
In any case, I thought this was a problem old people had. I am 21
years old. I am male, just incase that is useful information.
It doesn't seem to me that oxygten deprivation should be an issue.
My question is this: What is causing this and what can I do to
reverse and prevent it?
