Small red dots on feet and ankles
I have a few small red dots on my feet and ankles, they don't itch and it doesn't cover the whole feet and ankle like petechiae would, I don't have dogs or cats and I know what flea bites look like and this isn't that, so what could it be? I ahve them for about a month now.

Hi,

This seems to be cherry angiomas, from the description that you give, though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions.
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.
