Hello! For quite some time I have been dealing with a (for lack of a better term) rash on my face. It really isn't a typical rash because it is visible under the skin, the skin isn't broken or raised and doesn't itch. It is purple dots/circles, purple/red squiggly veins and red/purple splotches. I am debating if this warrants a trip to the Dr. and the embarrassment of having to go without any makeup on! Does anyone else have this or have any idea what it might be? I would appreciate any guidance or information! It didn't show up very well in the pic, but you can get a general idea of it.

Definitely worth making the trip to the doc. Could be rosacea or a lupus rash, though hard to tell from the picture.
