Thank you for your question.

A picture or pictures would have been very helpful in giving you guidance.

It sounds like reticular veins, spider veins or small varicose veins.

We recommend that you wear compression stockings and see a vein specialistif you have additional concerns. 

Photos are unbelievably helpful.

Need photos to even begin to try to give reasonable answers. There is a great dermatologist in Edmonton who might be able to help. Get your G.P. to refer you if you can. Dr. Jaggi Rao is the specialists name. Good luck.

Without picture it is nearly impossible to tell you what they may be.  I would reccomend that you see a dermatologist for a proper evaluation so that you can have a more certain diagnosis.
