Thanks for the query.
I would need certain informations from you so that I am in a better position to answer.
Since when you have noticed these dark vessels?
Is there any problem associated with it like pain or itching or any ulceration?
Any medical problem for which you are taking medications and if yes,then what are those medicines?
Waiting for your reply.
