If anyone has heard of this? I had started with redness on my feet which progressed up my legs over a period of time.It is now I'd say about 5 years and I have continued to have the redness spread over the rest of my body(hands,arms look like I have a sunburn only up so far, legs, breasts,stomach,ect...)it looks like blood under the skin (almost like little threads )I've got no itching,no burning,when I'm hot the redness gets worse,when Im cold a little more purple.I've see the doctor and had blood tests that turned up nothing.If anyone has any ideas please help.It is not painful or itchy however a constant hassle telling everyone it is not a sunburn,even harder in the winter!LOL

  • I have the same thing since my c-section/tubal ligation on April 9th of this year, not sure it's hormonal or not, mine gets really, really bad when I'm about to get my period, I'm wondering if it's too much/too little of estrogen, progestin or testosterone. I'm going to my Reproductive Endo on Monday to see if I can try slowly adding some of these homeones, I know I don't have enough of them.:(
