I have a red mark on my face that developed over a year ago, appears to be blood vessels visible and the skin pigment is light around red area. Ideas?

See a dermatologist: A persistent mark like you describe could be many things, including rosacea (a chronic inflammatory condition) to infection (such as a superficial fungal infection) to skin cancer. You should see a dermatologist for a closer inspection and a definitive diagnosis, that will determine what kind of treatment you will need. Good luck!

What does it mean if the blood vessels in my head are inflamed?

What does it mean if the blood vessels in my head are inflamed?

Vasculitis: The cause of most forms of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) is unknown. However we know the immune system plays a role. The immune system is meant to protect the body, but when it becomes "overactive" due to some unknown trigger it can cause inflammation in the blood vessels. This causes narrowing of the blood vessel, decreased blood supply which can cause damage to surrounding tissues.

I accidently burned the front side of my head with straightening iron it hurts really bad did this cause any damage to blood vessels or anything?

I accidently burned the front side of my head with straightening iron it hurts really bad did this cause any damage to blood vessels or anything?

Unlikely: The burn you have, even though I'm sure it's quite painful, is likely too superficial to come in contact with any blood vessels on your forehead. You can consider taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for your pain. Also, applying a cool (not icy cold) compress to the area may be helpful. Best wishes.
