Broken capillaries, bruising and bright blue veins on arms. Is it harmful?

Dr. Glamaga, Broken capillaries, bruising and bright blue veins on arms. Have been working some construction, but not aware of trauma. The order seemed to be as above. Is this just aging , thin skin, or something that should be examined? Bilateral, looks like twins on both forearms. Wonder if temperature in the 100 s for the last couple of weeks may also have some affect?

Broken capillaries, bruising and bright blue veins on arms are not a good sign for anybody. You have not told your age to us. If you are above 60 years then it can be a part of normal aging process, but id you are below that then you must see a doctor immediately.
