Small blood blisters

I have noticed many small red bumps on my skin - almost like small blood blisters.  They are all small but vary in size, perfectly round and a bit raised.  Can you tell me what causes this, what can be done to remove them, and what can be done to prevent them in the future?

Hello,
For these small red bumps, the possibility of cherry angioma is important but it depends on the severity and the area involved. Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped.

To confirm the diagnosis I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
