Specializes in Dermatology

Blood Vessels: Spider angiomas are abnormal collection of blood vessels of the skin with a red dot in the center and radiating smaller vessels that resemble a spider. They are commonly found on the face, neck, and hands and can occur at any age. Since they are benign, no treatment is necessary. Many resolve spontaneously.
