broken capillaries OR PIH?

Recommended Posts

So i have this area on my chin where i have lots of tiny papular acne. whenever they get inflamed and turn into regular pimples they leave behind marks that resemble broken capillaries. they look like red marks, but if i stretch my skin with my fingertips a little in that area, the red marks look like broken vessels while stretched out. those left from big pimples are more prominent, but even small pimples that i never even touched left similar marks. so i was wondering, are they really broken vessels or could they just be red marks that look weird because my skin in that are is covered in microscopic bumps? and is it actually possible for spider veins to appear when there's been NO pressure on the pimple?
