Skin Redness

Redness of the skin is a common symptom that can have many different causes. It can be the result of environmental factors, such as exposure to the sun or wind, or it can be the result of an underlying skin condition, such as rosacea or eczema. In some cases, redness of the skin may also be a sign of an allergic reaction.


Angiomas, or cherry angiomas, are common, benign skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body but most commonly show up on the torso or arms.

Venous Lake

A venous lake is a small blood vessel (vein) in the skin, which over time has become enlarged and wider. Although the cause is unknown, it is thought that long-term sun exposure can cause venous lakes. They are usually seen in people older than 50 and are more common in men than in women.

Spider/Leg Veins

Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are tiny veins that can appear through the skin. Individuals prone to flushing or blushing easily, those with very fair skin and sun-damaged skin, and those with rosacea are more prone to developing telangiectasias.
