Why Do Blood Vessels In The Skin Look Blue When Exposed To Water?
Good night, sorry in advance, I want to ask, about almost the last 2 months I feel disturbed by the condition of my skin where I when exposed to water (cold or hot) then my blood vessels will turn bluish (darker), even on the palm the hands will be deep green and purplish. And sometimes I feel tightness and pain in my chest. Does it include the initial symptoms of allergies?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your complaint is actually not a common symptom, and may or may not be related to tightness and chest pain depending on the results of other tests. A direct examination is needed to see how clearly the change in color of the blood vessels that occurs when your body is exposed to water, how long it will take to change, and how long it will take to return.
In addition, it is also important to see if there are other symptoms that you experience along with the color change. Does the feeling of tightness and chest pain appear when your body is exposed to water or in other separate conditions such as asthma, blood flow disorders, lung infections, heart problems and so forth. Disturbances that might occur in your complaint is most likely a disorder in the blood vessels or skin, which for more details should be examined first. Allergy is not a possible choice because symptoms of skin allergy are usually more on red spots and itching than blood vessels that change color.
Our advice, you should first check your condition with a general practitioner so that you can do an initial examination and determine the possible direction of the disease. If it is indeed an abnormality, you will be referred to an appropriate specialist, such as an internist, rheumatologist, or dermatologist. Meanwhile, because the condition is still unclear, there isn't much you can do independently so if you feel disturbed by this, you should immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
