Question red spot that looks like blood

I have a small circular redspot on the left side of my face on my check that looks like on closer inspection, a dab of blood. I've had it for about three years, and every once and a while it becomes aggrivated and really red. Is it a burts blood vessel? If so, how do I get rid of it. If not, what is it, and what can I do to get rid of it. It really bothers me!

I'd say it's definitely possible that it's a blood spot, I've had several small spots like that over the years... however they always go away on their own in about a week. I always wondered what causes them tho, as there seems to be no surface damage to the skin.

It could be a cherry angioma, which is just a benign, mole. They say more crop up with age and that they are prevalent on fare-skinned people…I have a few or them too.

I'm 20 and have two of these "blood dots" that won't go away. It's been about 6 months now! I think that the C-serum might be fading away the one on my nose though, but its so hard to tell with these things.
