Symptoms?: Angiokeratomas are benign skin lesions of capillaries (tiny blood vessels). I am not sure what causes them. Most patients are without symptoms and do not require treatment. However, intermittent bleeding, itching, and pain can occur. Laser therapy is one outpatient treatment. Excision and grafting may be needed, which should be definitive therapy.
