Re: Red Dots
The permanent ones might be cherry angiomas, they're benign and only need to be removed if they bother you.
Pinpoint bleeding under the skin (petechiae) could be something serious, definitely tell your doc about it. Usually though it's just a low platelet count. Autoimmune diseases, viruses, and some medications can create this type of anemia. I little red dots occasionally from my rheumatoid arthritis.
On the face, especially ones that look like acne around the nose, could Rosacea. (Do you blush easily? Get flushed from wine or coffee? Dry eyes?)
