    I believe most white people get those. They have a special name but I've forgotten it. They are tiny blood vessels that have broken through the normal fat layer of the skin to come to the surface. They are mostly harmless.

    Yes, I can not think of the name either but my daughter used to have them. Nothing to worry about.
