    THe correct answer is Livedo reticularis which is a vascular condition characterized by a purplish discoloration of the skin ,This discoloration is described as lacy or net-like in appearance and may be aggravated by cold exposure.

    Most often livedo reticularis causes no symptoms and needs no treatment. But it can be associated with serious underlying disorders, such as lupus, anti-phospholipid syndrome or Sneddon's syndrome. A rare complication of chronic renal dialysis known as calciphylaxis may first present with a livedo reticularis pattern.
