Cherry Angiomas – Self Diagnosis Of Red Spots On Skin

Cherry angiomas are small, bright red spots or lumps on the skin which are typical in older adults. Their cause is not fully understood but they are what results when a cluster of little dilated capillaries gather near the surface of the skin. This article shares traits related with cherry angiomas to help you formulate a symptom diagnosis. You can also find the steps you can take to eliminate them from your skin.

Cherry Angiomas Causes And Symptoms

Cherry angiomas are due to the benign (non-cancerous) growth of blood vessels, yet the cause of the vessel growth is not entirely understood. They can be discovered on the body of any individual irrespective of race or ethnic heritage . Advanced age is a known risk factor for their development.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the tiny red spots on my facial skin and how can I treat it?
    I’ve had for a long time red skin with tiny red spots on both my cheeks. I’m 14 and my diet is reasonably healthy. I wash my face with a facial scrub, gel and then hydrating cream. Am I doing something wrong?
    I considered it being Rosacea :S

    • ANSWER:
      You are probably irritating the area of your cheeks with the facial scrub. Generally the cheeks have less oil on the skin than the rest of your face so you are more than likely drying this area out. Try not using the scrub on your cheeks for a few days and see if the redness clears up.

  2. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

  3. QUESTION:
    how do you get rid of red spots/red skin on your face?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had this problem. I have very pale skin and my skin gets red and blotchy sometimes. I am using a product I just discovered, but it seems to be working well for me.

      It is called Neutrogena Visibly Even foaming cleansere and Visibly Even daily SPF 15 moisturizer. These have been developed for more even toned, radiant skin.

      I use Neutrogena because my skin is also very sensitive.

  5. QUESTION:
    “jewel spots” ??? or “strawberries” little red skin spots?
    im NOT talking about freckles!

    my boyfriend just discovered little red spots on his chest, he says his grandpa has a lot of them
    apparently old people get more of them???

    his mom calls them “jewel spots”
    my friend calls them “strawberries”

    do they go away? tell me everything you know about them

    • ANSWER:
      Is it getting bigger? My son has a “strawberry” the Dr calls it on his chest. It started like a little red scratch and now is the size of an eraser on the end of a pencil and raised up. It is technically called a hemangioma. She says it is just raised up blood vessels. It will supposedly go away by the time he is 5. Hope this helps.

  8. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of red spots on skin?
    I have some red spots on my skin and I don’t think they are from popping zits. So are they acne scars? How long until they go away?

    They seem to be fading, but if they are acne scars how long will it take for them to fade out?

    • ANSWER:
      Well they are probably acne marks forming into a scar. The down side of acne is that even after it is popped, it will leave a ugly reminder. I have sensitive pale skin, so the scars stand out even more than others.
      What you can do is: The pimples you have just popped, put Neosporin on it so that it can prevent infection and heal faster. The other acne scars, you can put Vitamin E oil every night with a Q-tip. I believe Vitamin E oil helps the skin to rejuvenate and has healing qualities.
      This has helped me tremendously and after a month you can see them fading.
      It is going to take time, but I will guarantee you that, if you do put it on EVERY night, you will have a huge difference.
      best of luck!

  9. QUESTION:
    How to reduce/get rid of red spots on skin from popping blackheads?
    i popped a few blackheads today (SRY ik i wasnt suppose to) and its the day b4 school and now i have red spots all over my forehead. im freaking out.
    no offense but I have school tommorrow as in less than 12 hrs. I dont have time to go out and purchase products

    • ANSWER:
      Okay okay. I pop them too. Yeah yeah we all know it’s such a sin, but whatever. (But seriously, I got some dark spots that took forever to fade so be careful.)
      When I get red spots after popping, well, first before I worry about the redness I wash my face and moisturize it well.
      Then, I do 3 things.
      First, I get some ice, and I hold it against spot after spot until it’s so cold I can’t take it anymore. Usually I just sit around watching tv or reading while I do this cause it can take a while.
      The water from the ice will continuously rinse out those open holes you made, and the cold will reduce redness. Then moisturize again just where you applied the ice because the water will dry and crack your skin. (Weird, right? But I promise it’s true.)
      Then, I use toothpaste.
      That’s right, you heard me. Toothpaste. I take a little dab and put it on top of the red spots. Don’t rub it in that much.
      If you think you won’t make a mess, sleep with that bit of toothpaste on. It’ll keep reducing redness as you sleep. Or just leave it on for as long as you can. If you want to sleep in it (which is the best idea) and want to prevent messiness, if you can, put a bandaid over the toothpaste-covered spot. That should keep the toothpaste where it is.
      ALSO…
      Before you go to bed, get a spoon or two and put it in the freezer and let them sit there overnight. Then, before going to school, go downstairs and put the cold spoons on your red spots and that’ll also help reduce redness. I actually do that because my eyelids get puffy as I sleep, but I bet you it’ll work for zit spots.

      Then, I guess if you’re still dissatisfied, your best bet is cover-up. Hope that helped, and have a good first day! Besides, don’t worry too much about how you look, nobody will remember a few zits…people are too worried about their OWN zits to care about yours ;P

  10. QUESTION:
    Red Spots on Skin after outside for awhile?

  11. QUESTION:
    Getting rid of dark circles under eyes and covering red spots on skin fr?
    I have dark circles under my eyes and i also have a few acne scars. when i wear foundation, all it does is make my skin sort of an ashy color. i want to have clearer looking skin. no dark circles or gray looking skin, any suggestions??

    • ANSWER:
      It starts first with skincare, of course. If your skin is oily, try a skin care regimen for your skin type which should include cleanser, astringent and very light moisturizer. If you have inherited dark circles under your eyes, best thing to do is use an under eye moisturizer then a lighter coverup than your skin tone, finish off with a face powder under eyes. If you are getting gray looking skin from makeup, chances are you are in the wrong color shade family. Try a lighter foundation and use a cover-up. You could also try a tinted, clear, foundation then finish off with foundation or face powder or both. Avon makes a good tinted, clear foundation to utilize before you put on your foundation. It sort of prepares the face before coverup and/or foundation. It’s called Magix. Best of luck.

    • ANSWER:
      Ive had this before , try not to wash it to much and let it rest. over stimulation can make it worse. Apply a decent amont of mositurizer directly to the area. I suggest Vaseline Intensive care, (only to that area) not all over your face, use a face mositruizer for that.

  16. QUESTION:
    uneven skin/red spots?
    I have alot of red spots on my face and i just don’t like the way my skin looks..what would help this? would foundation?..if so, how do i find one that matches my skin perfectly

    • ANSWER:
      if you can, see a dermatologist. You’ll be so glad you did it. It’ll really help make the skin great. If you want a quick cover up, I’d do this. Use an on spot concealer to first help cover the redness, then a bare minerals foundation to even everything out. you don’t want to look too cakey. Remember, always go a shade lighter than what you think. Finding the right shade will take some trial and error. But ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS go one shade lighter, it helps. Good luck!!!

    How do you get rid of red spots on your skin?
    I have very light skin, but I also have acne. After my acne has cleared up, I am left with red spots. It still looks like I have acne. I also have very sensitive skin.

    • ANSWER:
      Acne scars are hard to deal with. The one thing I’ve used is micro-derm abrasion. It basically takes off the top layer of dead skin cells in a pretty gentle scrub. The abrasives are really small so it doesn’t really irritate your skin much, and there’s a really nice moisteriser/protector to uses afterward.

      If you do it regularly (once-twice a week) the scars definately fade.

  21. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of red spots under my skin ?
    On the left side of my face I have these four red spots. I had acne there awhile ago I didn’t pop them just let go away. But now I have these red marks under my skin and its annoying! Anyone know what I can do to get rid of them? Any recommendations like Proactive or etc ?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Proactive works. So does any scrub with salycic acid like Garnier Pure Deep Pore Wash and follow with the Spot Pen from the same range. Cheaper than Proactive but not quite as effective. The red spots are flare ups. The pimple hasnt gone away and is just waiting to resurface again.

    What are these tiny red spots under my skin on my left forearm?
    It looks like I have a rash on my left inside arm, but it doesnt itch. These spots are darkish red and the size of a pin prick and it looks like it is blotchy and goes from the mid upper arm to halfway down my lower arm, only on the inside. What the heck??? I just noticed it yesterday.

    • ANSWER:
      There are two different types of things:

      The first is called “cherry hemangiomas” and they are harmless. These appear rather abruptly and do not not go away. They can be lasered off you get them in noticeable places.

      The second condition is petechiae. These are little burst blood vessels right under the skin. They disappear within 3 days or so and then you can get new ones. Having one or two of these occasionally is no big deal. Getting them a lot and in clusters can indicate several different types of blood disorders

  32. QUESTION:
    Itchy red spots on skin (stomach) not raised up like a bite tho?
    Idk what it is. Its not raised up like a bug bite or any kind but its red, itchy, and hurts to scratch. I have two spots right by each other but ones a small oval and the other is an even smaller circle, then there are 3 red dots leading away from the both of them

    • ANSWER:
      I used to have something like that but a bit more like hives, and believe me i know the feeling of wanting to scratch but being afraid you’ll hurt yourself. I made myself bleed once by accident. I suggest just going off certain foods you eat daily a good way of doing that is on the day that you get the rash think about what you ate, or what type of detergent you are using. Mine have gone away but it used to be REALLY bad. The weird things is, as soon as i left my school to go into a new one with higher grades, it went away….Haha, well if those suggestions dont work for you if they continue and they start getting worse, I would probably go see a doctor and maybe get a prescription cream, it might be because your skin is really dry too.
      Hope i helped!!

  33. QUESTION:
    Red spots on skin from leg to upper arm. Not itchy, just noticed them this morning, and spreading?
    Sorry that was more of a statement rather than a question but, i want to describe it, rather than ask a question.

    They are small pinkish and round. They dont itch one bit, and its from my legs to my arms in different places, not in a patch. I never had anything like this.

  36. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with my skin (red spots on cheeks)?
    Please someone tell me whats wrong with my cheeks?
    Hello, I am a 21 year old guy and I have had red cheeks for like 4-5 years now. I strongly doubt its acne, because its only on my cheeks and no where else on my face
    Face pain
    , plus it really doesn’t look like acne. Over the past 5 years it has gotten worse or better, and I have noticed that it gets worse during the winter and improves slightly over the summer. These started around when I was 17, before that my skin was clear. I have been to the dermatologist for this before, and he too says it can’t be acne or rosacea. They did a blood test to rule out lupus, and turns out that it has nothing to do with lupus. Now they want to do an expensive biopsy, to figure out what this is, but honestly I’m a college student and broke, and can’t afford that type of money. I have also tried Erythromycin before and that didn’t seem to do me any good. Anyway, if you think you know something that I don’t please feel free to post. I appreciate all the answer I get. Thank you in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      I saw 2 different dermatologists and got 2 completely different diagnosis! Don’t give up if you really want to know what is causing your facial redness and acne. See another dermatologist, or ask your doctor for a 2nd opinion.

      The redness of rosacea is often aggravated by involuntary blushing, and causes small blood vessels in the face to dilate and become more visible through the skin, appearing like a red rash or tiny red lines. Repeated episodes of flushing and blushing may promote inflammation, causing small red bumps that often resemble common acne.

      There are several reasons why a person might have rosy cheeks and facial acne. Here’s just a few ideas:
      - rosacea
      - hyperpyrexia
      - lupus
      - sun sensitivity
      - genetics
      - allergy

      Whether you have rosacea or not, there’s certainly ways to keep it more under control and less noticeable! Learning & understanding your personal triggers and adjusting your lifestyle is the first step.

      Here are a few helpful, (and natural) hints for a better complexion:

      - avoid touching your face throughout the day (dirt & grease etc.. can leave bacteria on your skin and clog the pores)
      - avoid any products with alcohol (internally or externally)
      - only use gentle, alcohol-free cleansers on your face
      - avoid scented soaps and creams
      - have a daily facial cleansing routine (2x daily, morning & night. Do not scrub as this will irritate the skin)
      - try a dairy milk face-soak during a flare-up (as long as you’re not allergic) The dairy milk helps to balance the natural PH of the skin
      - try using face lotion containing certified green algae (use lotion, not creams, as lotion is more gentle on the skin and absorbs more easily)
      - avoid extended periods in direct sun (use sunblock with 15 – 30 spf)
      - drink green tea, rose hip tea, and fennel tea (great antioxidants)
      - eat foods high in anti-oxidants; such as blueberries, cranberries, purple grapes, broccoli, etc..
      - avoid spicy foods and greasy foods
      - find out what your own personal food “triggers” are and avoid them so you can avoid flare-ups of redness and acne. (many people find food with histamines aggravate the redness)
      - avoid hot things. Hot showers & hot tubs, hot drinks (the heat will dilate blood vessels causing more redness)
      - try to get at least 7 – 8 hours of sleep each night (aids in the healing processes of the body)
      - try to cut down on stress (stress can magnify a multitude of conditions)

      You can try increasing your omega 3′s by taking supplements such as Evening Primrose Oil.
      Fennel seeds, Flax seeds and Flax seed Oil supplements also act as anti-inflammatories.
      Some people have had success using Turmeric orally or topically.

      Good luck with finding a proper diagnosis! I wish you the best!

  37. QUESTION:
    My skin keeps getting red spots all over it is this normal?
    So at random times of the day my skin will get itchy red spots on it that are bumpy but then they’ll go away after an hour or two, is this okay or should I see a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like urticaria, better known as hives.

      A lot of things can cause it, including allergies to food or drugs, something you use on your skin, laundry soap, environmental allergies, temperature, anxiety, etc.

      If they don’t happen often or don’t bother you much, you might try a process of elimination to see if you can figure out what is causing it.

      If the itch bothers you, use a dyphenhydramine (Benadryl or generic) ointment, gel, or spray on them. This will take care of the itch in a few minutes, and the bump will disappear sooner.

      If you get them often or if they cover a large part of your body, you should see a doctor.

  38. QUESTION:
    I have 4 very small light raised red spots on the skin, they are not in a clustered?
    they dont itch and hert they are like a small rased red dote on the skin. Does anyone have them also or do anyone no what this could be or can it be sun spots or age spots?

    • ANSWER:
      They are probably benign little tumors from vascular tissue. Very common as one gets on toward middle age. If that’s what it is, it’s not a problem but you will probably keep getting them, primarily on your torso and arms.

  46. QUESTION:
    Please help! Unsightly red skin on chest area. How do I get rid of it?
    The skin just below my neck often becomes red and sensitive. Sometimes this is because of irritation from clothes etc, but sometimes it seems to happen for no reason at all. It’s not itchy , it just becomes red and unsightly and sometimes red spots appear. I try to steer away from clothes made from fabrics that may irritate it, but it still appears. It really looks terrible! Does anyone know of a cream/ treatment that might work?

      Do not take the advice from anyone on here in regards to this issue. You ABSOLUTELY MUST get this checked out by a doctor (dermatologist) immediately to ensure it is nothing serious, and the dermatologist will tell you what you need to do to get rid of it.

      Check out something called Hidradenitis Suppurativa. Sounds like it could be in the beginning stage. It is a condition where in the sweaty or hair places it seems you get pimples or boils there that can be mild or very painful.
