Hi,

This could be cherry angiomas. Cherry angiomas are benign , fairly common skin growths that vary in size. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but usually develop on the trunk.

They are most common after age 40. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry_angioma

Cherry angiomas generally do not need to be treated. If they are cosmetically displeasing or prone to bleeding, angiomas may be removed by surgery, freezing (cryotherapy ), burning (electrosurgery/cautery), or laser.

Let us know if you need any other information.

Regards.

Hello,

I have pitichea.  The underlying cause has been diagnosed but as long as I have the condition that is causing them I may gradually get more and more.  In the past I have had telangiectasias removed from face and all across my chest by having them idividually zapped with laser or cauterizing needle.  Now, I have these red dots on thighs, arms and breasts, which looks like an unsightly rash!  My question is :  What TYPE of laser is most effective in removing these spots?!  Is there anything new?  Also, could vitamin K supplements help fade them?

Thanks for answers.
