Itchy Blood Vessels
Tiny, reddish spots on labia. No itchiness. Today one started bleeding. Was told about 5 years ago it was blood vessels. why the bleeding? Worry?
Varices?: Your report suggests the presence of congenital labial varices like those in the scrotum. They are annoying especially at seeing bleeding after their rupture usually by mindless scratch. Of course, it is hard to tell for 100% sure without a direct a look at. If confirmed, they require no practical care of any forms but mentally coping process. ...Read more
Whitish, itchy, bumpy Idiopathic hives turn flat & red after taking antihistamine. Is that normal? Maybe problems with mast cells / blood vessels?
Yes and no: Hives can at times behave this way but if you only have hives then it is unlikely that your problem is a mast cell disorder. Be sure you use a moisturizer immediately after bathing since dry skin can cause itchy bumps. You may also try upping the antihistamine dose to 4 x daily. If still not helpful , it is time to see a dermatologist or allergist. ...Read more

Blood vessel: Common to have a blood vessel break. Maybe you had some degree of trauma, even minor bump could cause. Breasts can be effected by hormones and this changes blood flow to breast. Swelling of vessels can cause weaker ones to break. ...Read more
I have about 15 tiny ruptured blood vessel looking dots on my inner arms, they aren't raised, itchy, or painful. I lift my heavy baby a lot connected?
Petechiae : you have petechia on your inner arms. So long as this is only from where you have repeated trauma from lifting the baby it is ok. This is like bruising. If you notice it elsewhere then it could be a sign of low platelets and you would need to see your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have burst a blood vessel in the middle finger of my right hand twice now in the same month. It starts out as an itchy feeling and ends up purple.
This is often: an elusive symptom. It actually tends to occur more in women and is sometimes associated with the connective tissue syndrome Raynaud's disease. This is a condition where small blood vessels constrict and may actually rupture such as you describe. It deserves a medical work-up to look for such conditions; you should carefully record the symptoms and circumstances and see your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Been doing crossfit 5yrs. Only been doing HIIT 3wks. After HIIT class 2 days ago veins on ea. side of my head were swollen, tender & itchy. Why?
The only explanation: I can possibly suggest is greater elevation of blood pressure associated with the High Intensity Interval Training.Sometimes when veins have been engorged due to increased pressure in the vascular system there is the sensation of itchiness;not sure about tenderness.I would consider some heart rate and blood pressure monitoring as you are adding HIIT into your regimen. And probably discuss with Doc ...Read more

Both eyes are itchy frm eyelid but right eye is red from veins, Can i use eyedrops to make it stop from over-the-counter and which ones are the best?
Depends what it's: itching from, allergy or animal dander? Rubbing eyes will make it more red. Whatever you do, don't use a eye decongestant as it will give your rebound redness that is hard to manage. If from animal dander, you must wash your hands after petting an animal, and use non preservative lubricating drops. If from allergy, there is mast cell OTC antihistamine/mast cell stabilizer available (Ketotifen). ...Read more
