Broken blood vessels may be cause for concern

DEAR DR. GOTT: I have a perplexing problem that I hope you can help me with. I break a lot of blood vessels in my fingers and wondered if you could give me some information on the subject, as I have one right now and it is very sore. I am constantly getting bulging, blue, broken blood vessels and don't do anything out of the ordinary to get them. Is this normal, should I be concerned, and is there any remedy to reduce them once they happen, like put cold or warm compresses on them?
