Customer Question

Hello, I have had these small pin size red dots on my chest for a few years now. Every doctor doesn't seem to care. I don't think this is normal and its very embarrassing. They are either Papura or Petichie I don't know if that's spelled right. They are always there and worse when its warm. They are not raised they are little broken blood vessels. What could cause this I really want them gone.

These look like tiny spider angiomas.

They can occur on the body due to fatty liver , genetic tendency or obesity.

They can go away with the application of liquid nitrogen cryotherapy .
