Brief Answer:
Upload an image of your hand for review!

Detailed Answer:

To be of most help, I will like to review an image of this area to see exactly how it looks. However, aging comes with thinning of the skin which allows for underlying structures such as veins to be easily seen. Veins are normally blue/purple in coloration and as such this is not surprising.

A review of this will allow for more insights. To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
