also known as Campbell de Morgan spots or cherry angioma
These bright red blemishes, which do not blanch when pressure is applied, are caused by leaking from blood vessels under the skin. They can be tiny and flat to the surface of the skin but larger ones may be domed.
Blood spots can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the torso. They increase with age and are more common in men than women. However, as women normally have less body hair to conceal them, their presence tends to be more obvious on women's bodies.
These can be completely removed by ACP. Small ones can disappear instantly with no discomfort at all, to be replaced by a tiny, sometimes unnoticeable, scab which lasts just a matter of days.
