I have mottled skin on one of my arms (most intense on the backside of my humerus/elbow) and a couple other small areas. At best it looks subtle, but under extreme temperatures it is intense purple when cold or intense red when hot. I was born with it and I think it's some sort of vascular condition...
I'm not sure exactly what the condition is, though I think I've narrowed it down to mottled skin. I previously thought it might be Livedo Reticularis or Cutis Marmorata because the web like pattern look similar but those conditions are associated with a blue color, which I don't have. Anyway I was wondering if anyone had a better idea of what I have. I was also wondering if anyone knew of any treatments. I'm curious as to what effect PUVA would have on it. I have also found a product called Skin Dr. by Native Remedies that is supposed to treat mottling, but am unsure it will work. I want to try it but I'm not getting my hopes up, I have a feeling this condition is permanent and there's nothing I can really do about it. I'll be thankful for any information I can get!
