    Red dots on my arms/chest/back/hands

    Alright, I'm 26 years old and these little red dots have been coming up for the last 6 years or so. It seems SOME of them get bigger as I get older. One of two of them are slight raised, but most of them are not as of right now.

    There is a fair bit of them and some are bigger than others. Some are slightly dark read and some of them are light colors. They have different sizes, but a chunk of them are about the size of a red period. Like I said, some seem to get alittle bigger as I get older.

    They don't hurt or ich or anything, they just look annoying.

    Anybody have any idea what these might be?

    I would go to an allergist or a dermatologist and they can scrape a few and test them to find out what is going on.

    Re: Red dots on my arms/chest/back/hands

    I'm an overweight person. Have been my entire life. Not sure if it has anything to do with it though.

    These dots are not on my legs. Some of them are alot smaller than others. Also, I've noticed that when they first pop up they're sort of dark red, but as they "mature" they turn to a much lighter red color.

    I'm a worry wort and I have EXTREMELY pale skin. I'm about as white as white can get.I get little sun at all. Being so pale skinned it makes even the smallest ones very easy to see.

    It's just that when they first pop up they have a dark red color and it takes awhile for them to get bigger/mature and they turn a more bright red. I also notice that if I stress they seem to pop up more.

    I haven't been to the doctor in probably 15 years. I've always been a healthy person with the exception of the typical problems of being overweight. I rarely get badly sick. I haven't even had an ear infection in probably 15 years or so. I almost never get headaches or anything like that either.

    The only problem I really have is poor blood circulation and that's because I'm overweight and prone to setting at the computer desk also. I lost some weight last year and my health improved 100%. ESP when I got off coca and only drunk water.

    I've just worried about the things for years. They look rather unattractive and tend to stick out due to me being extremely lightskinned.

    It's just that I have no other problems that aren't weight related. People suggest that it's that cherry....errrr whatever you call it.

    They are cherry angiomas. They are benign red spots that pop up as you grow older. They vary in size. I have them on my arms, chest, and stomach. Alot of people get them. Nothing to worry about.

    Re: Red dots on my arms/chest/back/hands

    I had one doctor tell me they were caused by high estrogen E2 in the body.

    I reduced the E2 with DIM & have not had any more.

    I have little pinprick red dots on my hands and have done for years and years. I was told they're hemangiomas (benign overgrowths of capillaries).
