Hi,

This could be cherry angiomas. They are not harmful, and are considered a benign skin growth. Campbell de Morgan Spots are not painful, but some are prone to bleeding when scratched or bruised. From a purely medical perspective they don’t require removal unless they’re prone to bleeding frequently.

Commonly, doctors remove Campbell de Morgan Spots via three different methods. Electrosurgery is minor surgery, using a small needle that generates electricity to disrupt and remove an angioma. Cryotherapy is most common, and uses liquid nitrogen to essentially freeze off Campbell de Morgan Spots. Laser removal is now possible with many Campbell de Morgan Spots. These procedures tend to leave very little scarring, if any.

It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination if the symptoms persist.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you need any other information.

Post us about what your doctor advises.

Regards.
