Is it unusual for disappearance of mottles after hot baths?

Hi, skin mottles when I first get into a warm/hot bath. It goes away quickly, within a minute or two. Just curious about it, I imagine the capillaries in my relatively cold skin vasodilate in the hotter water. Is it unusual to see it, or no? It reminds me of the appearance of dappling on a horse (which I know it s not).

Hi,

It is very natural that the colour caused by dilated capillaries by hot water bath disappear after the bath...so, there is no need to worry... ok

Hope this helps.
