I have this condition, it’s on my arms and legs and very rarely goes away. Is it a problem? Is there a way to get rid of it?

Hi @12344 and welcome to Connect. That must be so frustrating to have this skin condition rarely go away.
I wanted to share this article on livedo reticularis: https://www.mayoclinic.org/livedo-reticularis/expert-answers/faq-20057864
I also wanted to tag fellow Connect member @canderson12 as they have mentioned livedo reticularis in the past and may be able to share their experience.
Back to you, how are you currently treating it?

Indeed it’s very frustrating. I looked up how to treat it, it said to use warmth. So I’ve tried to stay warm as often as possible, although sometimes it stays there even if I’m in a place at room temperature.
The description on the link you gave me matches the description exactly, except for me it’s on both arms and legs.
