I have a rash on my lower legs. It looks like broken capillaries. No itching. I am over weight and take meds for blood pressure and a statin?

In brief: Telangiectasias

Telangiectasias can be seen anywhere on the body.
They are common on the face (nose, cheeks, and chin) and legs (particularly the thighs, just below the knees and the ankles). Telangiectasias are superficial blood vessels in the skin. Treatment is with lasers or sclerotherapy.
