    Small purple thread like veins on breast please help

    Can anyone help? Iím so so worried. I looked in the mirror this morning and my left breast looked like it had a patch of purple on the side closest to my chest, well I looked closer and itís these little purple spider like veins but a lot of them. My other breast has a few but not as many. Iíve googled it and got myself into a right state. IBC symptoms showed a purple bruise like patch on breast and mine is purple. Iím not sure if itís always been like that but Iíve got awful breast anxiety at the moment and this has really set me off. That hot white panic :(

    Everyone has these. Please don't worry about them? You have purple veins on your breasts because you have breasts.

    Do you think itís okay that one breast has them and the other doesnít really? My left breast has a big patch of them where the other doesnít.
    Iím isolating at the moment due to waiting for a corona virus test and my mental health is bad

    I think it's absolutely okay - after all, we're not symmetrical.

    Sorry you're feeling awful, all I can say is that I suffer from rotten HA and this isn't something that would worry me in the least.

    I bet they've always been there, or have come slowly over a few years. Many people with lighter skin get them, particularly as they get older, skin thins, hormones change or weight increases. I see my veins all over the place - and yes I have assorted spider veins on breasts here and there and not symmetrically.

    I do have light skin, but Iím sure they have increased, I donít remember thinking my breast looked purple before. I wish I could post a photo to show it

    I’m frightened it’s IBC.
    I know you are, but it won't be, as that wouldn't be the only symptom anyway.

    Iím not sure what to think, I keep getting red patches on them too now which I havenít noticed, and pain in my nipple which didnít start until I worried myself. What other symptoms would there be?

    Okay, this is where you need to take a breath and start working on your anxiety. You've received lots of advice, but you're making the choice to feed your fears. This is unhelpful to you and also kind of disrespectful to the people who've taken time to explain why you don't have anything to be afraid of.

    I mean this in the kindest possible way, but start employing your coping strategies and get a grip. I know it sounds brutal, but I found myself in the middle of a violent panic attack earlier this week and I had to make the choice to do what was healthiest rather than letting it take control.
