blue veins on fingers..

Hey guys! I've noticed that my finger tips have become very blue. I can't tell if this is bruising or something else... It doen't look like a normal bruise (very streaky). Is this normal?

Depends on skin color, hemoglobin/hematocrit and all sorts of other things.

If you're short of breath, do go get checked out by a doctor.

I just recently found out that this is actually Raynaud's phenomenon(you can google it). Its not a serious thing in itself its just that it could be a symptom of an autoimmune disease so now I have to get tested for Lupus! so scary. I wonder if Accutane had anything to do with inducing it. I didn't have this problem before....then again who knows. I'm not saying that I regret taking accutane (b/c I really needed it!) I just wonder if there are side effects that people don't even know about.

I could be mistaken but I think Lupus is a rare but possible side effect.
