Possibly normal: Some people have more visible veins. In rare cases a blockage of the veins inside the abdomen or chest could result in more prominent surface veins, but usually this would also be associated with abdominal swelling, leg swelling, shortness of breath and other symptoms. If you're worried, get a medical exam. But if you're otherwise feeling well, it's unlikely to be a significant problem. ...Read more

Some veins more noticeable especially if you have fair skin. Discuss further with md. ...Read more

Right breast itches and red veins appear. No skin flaking or rash. Extremely itchy so I itch it raw. Is this normal? Just in one breast.

Unsure: That sounds like Tinea Corporis. If so it should respond to one of the OTC anti-fungal topical medications. If that does not work, then see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a quarter sized red circle on my breast came a week ago. Its not raised,  no texture, not itchy, spider veins coming off it. Not ring worm?

Irritation?: Dermatitis is a red circular rash. It could be that. You can try Hydrocortisone 1% cream 3 times a day for a week. If that doesn't work then you should be seen to find out what it is. Ringworm is itchy and raised, so that is not likely in your case. ...Read more
