Brief Answer: estrogen excess Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the photograph. It is appearing as telengiectesia, that is dilated blood vessels that can be compressed, hence it disappear on pressing. You are correct, it indicates liver disorder. It usually happens due to estrogen excess in body. Please get your testosterone and estrogen levels done and let me know the reports. Thank you

Brief Answer: Need not be worried... Detailed Answer: Hello, You don't need to worry much. It is not as sinister as you think it is. I would not be concerned as long as your liver function tests are normal. These are just superficial dilation of blood vessels probably due to hormonal imbalance. It will come under control as soon as the imbalance is corrected. I cannot advice you any treatment until the diagnosis is proved. You can start the treatment after you get back home. In the meanwhile, watch out for systemic symptoms like abdominal pain which will need an immediate doctor attention. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
