Red dot: A red macule that doesn't blanch may be a hemangioma which is a benign vascular growth that is slightly raised and is permanent. A perfectly flat lesion may be a petechia which is a leakage of blood from a tiny blood vessel and this resolves in a week or so. Have your physician check it if you have further concerns.
