Are these broken blood vessels?

Asked by XOIIO (18120points) July 8th, 2010

I have had these on either side of my chest for a wile now. are they burst blood vessels? I seem to recall one day feeling a sort of stabbing hot pain in my chest then coldness, although I don’t know what I was doing at the time.

They look like pretty typical stretch marks to me.

I agree, they do look like relatively new stretch marks.
Not to worry, the will fade in color over time and become less noticeable – and they are harmless.

I didn’t think they would be harmful. Too bad that they will fade, they look kindof cool.

It does look like a stretch mark but the only other thing I could think of possibly would be maybe some light spider veins?

I would check with your doctor, better safe than sorry! :)

@XOIIO there is really no guarantee that they WILL fade, actually. That seems to be a hit or miss thing with stretch marks.

Baw, it isn’t spider veins.
