This Is Why You Have Red Marks On Your Skin
Lifestyle - News
We all have moles, freckles, and birthmarks, but if you also have tiny red bumps on your skin, it’s possible you've got a completely benign phenomenon called cherry angioma. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung defined cherry angiomas as "small bright red bumps, made up of clusters of blood vessels."
Although the name sounds frightening, these red angiomas are harmless and painless. Their exact cause isn’t known, but genetics, hormones, and age are factors that make some people more likely to get them, and they are more likely to crop up on women when their estrogen levels go up, such as during pregnancy.
There’s no need to seek treatment for a basic cherry angioma, though you can have them removed if they are located somewhere on your body that is frequently bumped, causing bleeding. However, if your little red spot or any spot on your body changes in size, shape, or color, you should see a doctor.
