Pale with mottled skin?

Does anyone else have a toddler with mottled skin (basically looks like you can see a web of blood flow under the skin)? DD is now 2 and has had it since birth which I assumed is because she is so pale/fair skinned, but wondering if it's anything to be concerned about. It's definitely more noticeable when she is cold, but I feel like you can always see it a little regardless of temperature. Her pediatrician has never been concerned, but has never really investigated it at all.

If the doctor is not concerned, then you can either accept his opinion or get a second doctor's opinion. There could be many reasons why the skin looks that way, and what has been the case for one person may not be the case for your daughter. So, you should accept any stories of people here with a grain of salt. Their experiences may or may not apply to your daughter's condition. The only way to be sure is to be diagnosed by a doctor.
