In brief: Angiokeratomas

Angiokeratomas are small bumps on the skin, about 2-4 mm in diameter, that appear like watery, blood-filled blisters (vesicles).
These are a form of benign overgrowth of capillary blood vessels in the superficial skin. The most effective way to treat them if you want to get rid of them is by freezing (cryotherapy).

In brief: Laser or cautery

Angiokeratomas are little flesh-colored papules made of small blood vessels that are sometimes mistaken for acne pimples.
They can be cauterized with an electric needle or ablated with certain types of lasers.
