Red Spots on the Skin
Ever noticed small, bright red bumps on your skin? Those tiny red bumps are called cherry angiomas, and they're made up of clusters of blood vessels. Although their bright color may look alarming, they are entirely harmless and not cause for concern. So, what causes them? Researchers believe that factors like genetics, hormones, and age play a role in these benign moles popping up on the skin. In addition, a loss of collagen may also cause cherry angiomas to develop. If they bother you cosmetically, here are your options for removing them: (1) Electrocautery. (2) Laser treatment. (3) Shave excision.
