Little Red Dots
1 1

6 posts in this topic

When I was a teen I found my first raised red dot on my skin. My mother told me that it meant I constipated too often. I have many of these dots on my body now. I asked my Doctor and he told me that was an old wives tale but he couldn't tell me what they actually are. They never ever go away. My question is are they related to Celiac disease? Anyone else have them or even know what I'm talking about? What are they called?

I'm surprised a doctor wouldn't know what these dots are......here's my no degree doctor's best choice..... cherry hemangiomas, most often non cancererous....there are also spider angiomas' as well.....

I have them & lots of them, they do sometimes bleed if you cut one while leg shaving....Mine are on my legs but mostly the torso.....

I had a few of these show up on my tummy earlier this year, right around the time all my other symptoms came down in a big way. I figured they were that cherry thingie too. :)

It might be a mild case of leukocytoclastic vasculitis. But you should get it checked out to make sure.

Has anyone found anything out about this? I have started noticing these lately as well. My primary care doctor shrugged it off as some kind of dermatitis. I would have been okay with that had the internet not scared me with all kinds of things.
