Hi bonnie,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for writing in.
It can be spider angiomas a vascular malformation.
It is a sign of liver disease.It can also be present normally as a part of aging.
A visit to dermatologist will allow confirmation of diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Hope this helps.
Wishing you good health.
