Customer Question
Hello, I have had these...
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.

Thank you for your message.

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 .

Do let me know if you have any further queries,

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
