In brief: Cherry angiomas

These benign skin lesions are called 'cherry angiomas' .
These red spots are associated with pregnancy, 'hormones', aging and liver disease. See your physician/dermatologist for confirmation because sometimes a melanoma can present with various shades of red-black. Any 'strange moles' need double-check ('the ugly duckling sign'), but may not be related.

In brief: Cherry angiomas

Cherry angiomas are small bright red or purple spots.
They are common and pose no danger . However if moles are changing it could indicate a skin cancer. See a dermatologist for evaluation and treatment.
