What Do These Red Dots on Your Skin Mean?

If you suddenly found a confusing red dot on your skin, put your mind at
ease. An angioma is a small benign tumor that consists of blood
vessels. The most common kind of angioma is the cherry angioma, also
known as Campbell De Morgan spots or senile angioma. They are cherry red
papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood

Angioma Causes

The two major reasons for developing angioma are:

1. Age – Many people get angiomas at the age of 30 or more. As
a rule, in this case it looks like a small convex cherry mole and is
mainly situated on the arms, legs or chest and shoulders. Such angiomas
are caused by simple age changes of skin and blood vessels;

2. Health problems or the wrong lifestyle – If the angioma looks
like a spot and begins vascular branching, it may indicate problems with
the liver, vascular diseases, or a hormonal failure.

What to do about it?

While angiomas are not a cause for concern, you should watch them
regularly to see if there is a change in them. If you suddenly notice
that a familiar red mole unexpectedly changes size, shape, or has
started bleeding, you’d better consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Furthermore, just to be on the safe side, you should mention them at
your next scheduled doctor’s appointment.

The best angioma prevention is a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet.
Drink juices and plenty of water, eat fresh vegetables, and don’t forget
about healthy fats such as avocados and olive oil. These simple rules
will help you keep your skin clean and young, and your body healthy. If
you already have angiomas and want to remove them, it’s a routine visit
to the dermatologist. Your dermatologist can “burn” them with safe
electric current. However, don’t try to burn an undiagnosed angioma on
your own – you can cause further complications.
