Busted Blood Vessels?
Hi all,

A few days to my period, i always notice dark(like redish brown) blotches(big marks) on my thigh and leg area. They are sometimes painful, but mostly they don't hurt me at all. I am just worried about what they could be. Could it be that my blood vessels bust during my period? This only happens a few days to my period, and usually disappears by themselves after my period.

Any help on what this could be?

I'm afraid I can't tell what these are without seeing them.

Best wishes
