red spots like protruding blood vessels on lip

Hi.  My 7 year old has had one large protruding red spot on top lip that if you pick drips blood like a tap.  He has recently developed two smaller ones on bottom lip.  If you pull the lip tight it sticks out.  It really looks like a bright red spot that protrudes.  The reason I am asking now is my other child aged 2 has also just developed two tiny red dots on lips that again look like the ends of blood vessels.  They do not look like spider nevi as no spider veins around the side, just red dot that sticks out.  It seems too much of a coincidencet that they both seem to have this.

Any ideas as I am worrying about this as these are my children!!
