The red mottling is just the dilation of the blood vessels due to the heat of the water (doesn't take much of an increase over normal body temperature) and also a little bit to do with the massaging effect of the water droplets striking your skin. It's a GOOD thing for a change!

I was going to vote possibly Raynaud's (don't know if you have that though). Nothing like turning white/red/blue in the shower. I notice it seems to do that 'mottling' colour as well on me if I get any type of chill at any time. I always described mine as sort of a 'redish/purplish' coloured mesh.
