Hi everyone,
I have noticed some strange marks at the very top of my thighs which look similar to very faint scar tissue. It is if these small veins of skin are different in texture. when i gently pinch the skin around these "scars" they become more pronounced and sort of raise up. from one angle they may appear reddish, but from another they appear to be white in colour. they don't hurt either. also, I am young so I dont think it is any sort of varicose vein disorder. I am sorry, it is very hard for me to discribe the symptoms because they are so odd.

does anyone have any ideas. is this just some sort of odd skin thing that happens to everyone, or could they be an indicator of something more serious?

  • No I haven't, which is why I find them so strange. I am a fitness freak so my weight is pretty much constant and i am not overweight.
