Tiny red spots that don't go away
Anon_177415 posted:
Hey all, I have these teeny tiny red spots 1 right under my eye, 1 next to my eye, and 1 on my leg. They are the size of a pin head and are reddish purple. They don't hurt and they don't bleed. But it's been several months and they aren't going away. They also don't change size.

Know what this is or what to do about it?

Hi Anon,

I wanted to pass along a response to a similar question from Dr. Buchness - Red Spots on Skin .

Also, this resource may be helpful - Cysts, Lumps and Bumps .

Please understand, the only way to get an exact diagnosis would be to see your doctor or dermatologist.

Let us know what you find out,
