    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I have what look to be blood blisters all over my body. Most are very small, not noticeable to other people, but I'm wondering why they are there? Should I be concerned?

    Many people get these little cherry hemangiomas as we age. I got them in my 30's, I remember. They look like tiny to mole sized, slightly raised spots. See this photo - you can see they come in different sizes. Don't try to prick them and "let the blood out" - it's not like a blood blister - more like tiny tumors. But, my doctor said they are harmless and he sees them all the time.

    If this is not what yours looks like...wrong guess!

    I think you are exactly right! It makes sense, all three of my daughters have hemangiomas; I just never put it together that this could be the same. Thanks so much for your response!
