There are two primary reasons for thread looking veins on the face and chest. Liver disease (typically from drinking too much, accompanied by a bulbous nose) or Rosacea (a skin sensitivity disorder throught to be caused by allergies). If your liver enzymes are all normal, then you should see a Dermatologist for Rosacea.
