Avatar n tn Hello, Cherry angiomas appear spontaneously in many people in middle age but can also, occur in young people. They can also occur in an aggressive eruptive manner in any age.Why this occurs is till not known.They are harmless and the only reason for their removal is cosmetic appearance You can consult a dermatologist and get them removed.Methods used for their removal are cryosurgery ,electrosurgery,pulsed dye laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).
Avatar m tn Also, I read the article below that said cherry angiomas most frequently appear after age 40. I believe I have two other very small angiomas that have appeared in the same general area (lower leg just below the knee). Should this be a cause for concern given my age? Should I have any other concerns with developing multiple angiomas? Or because they are in the same location? http://www.healthscout.com/ency/68/18/main.
Avatar m tn Japanese researchers found that cherry angiomas were associated with oxidative stress. Excessive oxidative stress can damage DNA and cause mutations in cells. Consuming a diet containing antioxidants to improve your immune system and avoiding pollutants and chemicals in the environment helps to prevent and combat this.
Avatar m tn Hello, These small red moles can be due to cherry angiomas. The underlying cause for the development of cherry angiomas is not understood, so nothing can be predicted about their prevention but rest assured; they are harmless. If they are to be removed for cosmetic reasons, electrosurgery and cryosurgery can be used. More recently pulsed dye laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment are also used.
Avatar n tn I have several cherry angiomas on my torso, arms, and legs. (4 large ones, 12 medium ones, dozens of small ones, and countless pin-point sized ones.). One of the large ones is bothering me, so I'd like to have it removed. While I'm at it, I'll remove as many of the others as possible. How does it work? Will a dermatologist schedule time with me and use their laser or electric needle to remove as many as they can during that time?
Avatar n tn Hi, Cherry angiomas, or cherry hemangiomas, are cherry red papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped. They range in colour from bright red to purple.

Avatar f tn Hi, This could be cherry angiomas. They are not harmful, and are considered a benign skin growth. Campbell de Morgan Spots are not painful, but some are prone to bleeding when scratched or bruised. From a purely medical perspective they don’t require removal unless they’re prone to bleeding frequently. Commonly, doctors remove Campbell de Morgan Spots via three different methods. Electrosurgery is minor surgery, using a small needle that generates electricity to disrupt and remove an angioma.

Avatar m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be due to cherry angiomas,folliculitis,contact dermatitis,sweat dermatitis or dermatitis. Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped. When they first develop, they may be only a tenth of a millimeter in diameter and almost flat, appearing as small red dots.Pls don’t worry as they are harmless.
Avatar m tnLaser treatment to Cherry Angiomas immediately. We use a long pulsed Nd:Yag laser for this and I would anticipate removal of these in one session with no real issues. Commence Obagi Nu-Derm immediately for the reduction in hyperpigmented areas. The system is a combination treatment of 4% Hydroquinone and tretinoin and should be used for a minimum of 6-12 months. As we discussed, this will cause initial redness and flaking, as both active ingredients are irritating to the skin.
Avatar n tn The proliferation of these cherry spots, cherry angiomas, haemangiomas etc., over a short period can indicate an internal malignancy, so get them checked out by your physician, which is what I'm going to do, as my 20 or so have appeared in the past year! It's really worrying when new ones seem to appear almost every day! As one contributor above suggested, is something more sinister the cause, food additives, microwaves etc.! Take care!
