Have 3 flu hemangiomas on liver. As adult only I'm getting lots of small red spots filled with blood all over body, face and scalp. Due to liver? Name?

Probably nothing: If the red spots on your skin are cherry hemangiomas / "Campbell de Morgan spots", relax, they mean absolutely nothing. Maybe one person has a hemangioma or two or three in the liver and it's a non-issue itself -- a Gorbachev birthmark, a curiosity. Be thankful for good health. ...Read more

I have red spots on my body at night. They it's terribly and appear on my breasts neck&arms. Help?

No fun!: Skin problems can be a real challenge without actually seeing the rash. In general, rashes are diagnosed based on their size, shape, color and distribution. The age of the patient and their medical history are also very important. In your case, I would be curious to know if you have recently switched to a different laundry soap for your bedding. On the safe side, i'd get it looked at by your doc. ...Read more

Everytime I shower or take a bath I get itchy red spots on my body mostly on my upper body and face sometimes. Is it an allergy to be concerned of?

Heat Urticaria: Some people get hives from exposure to really hot water. The rapid change in skin temperature from cold to hot and then hot to cold causes release of histamine which is what causes the rash. You can take a shower that is not quite as hot and see if this helps or you can take a long acting antihistamine like Zyrtec (cetirizine) and see if this helps. If not see an allergist. ...Read more

I have small red spots on my torso after tanning. Do they get larger if not treated? Do they go away after time?

I have small red spots on my torso after tanning. Do they get larger if not treated? Do they go away after time?

Unsure: As with any rash an eyes on exam is always best. It could be an irritation around the hair follicles. If not too bad observe it for a few days. More importantly - why tanning? Dark skin culturally viewed as healthy but it's on the same scale as smoking as cancer risk. Invest in spray on if needed or gradual coloring body lotion.

I have two small red spots on my breasts. Should I be concerned?

Breast Redness: This depends on a few things. How long have they been there? Are they painful or itchy? Is there a hard area underneath? Where on the breast are they located? If they've only been there a short time, don't hurt or itch, and aren't hard underneath, waiting it out may be appropriate. However, if you're concerned, getting to a doctor that can see the spots is best. ...Read more
