Itchy Blood Vessels
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

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?

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
Some years back I got a bump on one of the veins on my penis. Recently my veins on my penis got reddish purplish and itchy. Should I see a Doctor??
Dry skin: My guess - pure guess - is that the skin overlying your veins itch - likely due to dry skin. "allergic" involvement of veins - actually immunologic involvement of veins is called vasculitis. The symptoms are bruising, burning & possibly pain. But this is another question that is hard to answer on healthnet. You are going to have to see your physician for this one. ...Read more
