Blood dots on skin

Posted by Lena on September 15, 2002 at 09:02:21:

I have been noticing those "red dots" that are smaller than moles all over my body. Some of them look they are about to come out of the skin. I pinched one dot and squeezed really hard, blood came out and formed a scab. I think I have always had them but they seem to have increased in number these days. Dose anyone have anything like this??

Yes I have one or two. I was told that they were the end of a blood vessel. I think they are harmless but if you are concerned you should see a dermatologist to rule them out as a possible symptom of an underlying condition.
Good luck,
Amy

Hi, Lena (and Amy).

These are tiny arterial hemangiomas and are known to be more common with a decrease of liver function. Once they are there, improving liver function will not remove them but will prevent new ones within a few months (see the liver archives as to what to do.

Other than what they mean, they are totally harmless.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
