    Hi

    I have several white spots on my shoulders but now I have a pinkish red spot that is kindof oval. It's looks shiny and smooth and kindof like a blister. I believe i have two of them.

    It does not look like a pimple to me.

    Does anyone know what this would be?

    Hi there beccakae2,
    Have you seen a dermatologist about the various spots on your skin? It could be no cause for concern, but it also could be a more serious issue. It's better to be safe than sorry so I would get your skin checked out so that you can ease your mind.
    In the meantime, here are links to information on WebMD that you might find useful.
