As you said there are spider veins running in your family, I would say a few words about them and you might compare these to what you have on your skin, as I haven’t understood the best what exactly these appearances look like.
Spider veins are small blood vessels that appear red or blue in the skin. They are the most likely to occur on legs, but could also appear on the face and other parts of the body. These blood vessels seem like short unconnected lines, and reminds of a pider web. The larger dilated blood vessels are called varicole veins and are raised above the skin.
Spider veins usually do not need medical treatment. But varicose veins usually enlarge and worsen over time. Severe varicose veins can cause health problems including severe venous insuffiiciency, sores or skin ulcer, irritation, swelling and rashes of the legs.
As what you have is red in color, I could make a comparison with spider veins, but lets not diagnose it but leave it for a proffesional opinion. I think you should see your doc about this.
