Re: Red Moles aka Cherry Angiomas
I don't know what you mean by mass amounts but, I can nearly play connect the dots with mine too. Mine are all on my stomach and chest area between my breasts. They showed up maybe a bit over a year or 2 ago. My derm told me the same thing that they are cherry angiomas but, never said anything about hormones. He was more concerned about the 2 moles he wanted to removed. Once he told me they were harmless, the weight about them was off my shoulders so, what he told me causes them nearly escapes my memory but, I think it was something about broken capillaires or broken angiomas or something that happens as we get older. BTW, I will be 34 next week so, I am guessing, given your age, the timing of them appearing is somewhere in the 30's. But, perhaps, we aren't the norm and it can happen at any age and to anyone.
Anyway, as for roughly how many I have, I checked an area of my stomach about 6 inches by 3 inches and counted 6. I don't know of anything that will make them go away. Mine do tend to "blanche" (my derm's term) when I apply a little bit of pressure for a couple seconds but, they always return to that bright red color. They look like blood blisters to me. Anyway, I am an extremely freckly and moley person so, I guess they don't bother me now that I know that they are harmless, courtesy of my derm. They are just a few more spots to my already leopard like skin. I played outside a lot growing up and, rarely applied sunscreen so, I have no one else to blame by myself about my spotty skin.
Anyway, Sorry I can't be of more help!
