Livedo reticularis

The pictures are not of high definition to truly appreciate what you have.

They could be livedo reticularis, although you are fairly young to have that. 

See a dermatologist for appropriate guidance.

It is very difficult to see your problem on these photos.  I do see some reddish areas that look like they may be enlarged blood vessels.  Do you use a Lap Top that generates heat or a heating pad on these areas?  If so, and if what I'm seeing are truly vessels, this may me the cause of your problem and may resolve spontaneously when you discontinue the Lap Top/Heating Pad.  It would be best to be evaluated in person by your dermatologist.
