not spider veins
hi there
i really hope you can help me,because everyone i ask cannot answer.

i have purlpish/blue blotches on my inner thigh (between my hip and my knee), but more towards my knee. when i rub it,it still does not go away.i am 21 and i do exercise most of the week.
i have not gone to the doctor,because i dont want to go and pay a lot of money,then its just something normal.

please help,because this is kind of worrying.it just doesnt want to go away.

you did say that it could be spider veins.i know what spider veins look like and i know for sure that it is not that...

Hi Help
Try and explain to me how it looks - does it look like a bruise? Is it tender, or does it change colour?
If you press on it does it feel like there is fluid inside?
