Tiny red dots on chest??

Does anyone have these tiny red dots on their chest? Mine are mainly on my chest but I have some on my stomach and back. I just noticed them a couple weeks ago and when I look them up, all I see is how its a sign of leukemia or other infections??

The only health issue I'm dealing with right now is Thyroid Disease- I was just diagnosed with that. I had a baby 9 months ago, could they be post partum related? They are tiny like a pin head size.

Re: Tiny red dots on chest??

Hi,

I have these dots too. I've had them for a number of years; on my breasts, abdomen area mostly although there are a few on my arms and even legs. Like you I do have a thyroid disease.

All the research I've done pin points to something autoimmune and liver, but it seems for the MOST part, doctors are not concerned with this therefore NO ONE has taken the time to find out what really causes it. I did have one doctor, a SKIN specialist tell me it was directly related to stress and remove stress factors.

I've tried treatment for parasites in case that's what caused this but they didn't go away.

I'd like to know if yours have improved and/or what you've found.

Thanks.

Corrie

I think they're called cherry angioma's and they're harmless
