Types of red dots (angiomas)
Red moles are usually divided into several varieties. Their classification is based on such factors as the cause of appearance, location on the body, the type of vessel that caused its formation.
Depending on the cause of the appearance of angioma, the composition of the tissue, red dots or moles of several varieties are:
- pineal. A convex neoplasm that rises sharply above the skin.
- nodular. A small point formation that appeared as a result of the release of a blood vessel on the surface of the skin. Such an angioma does not have a capillary branch.
- branched or arachnid. The network of small blood vessels departs from the angioma.
- flat. A mole on the skin in the form of a seal.
What do the red moles on the body mean?
Depending on the vessels underlying the formation of red moles, they are called hemangiomas. Moles formed due to an abnormality of blood vessels, and lymphangiomas. Points that appear due to impaired functioning of the lymphatic system.
Hemangiomas are impressive in size. Lymphangiomas are rare occurrences. These are small nodules that are soft to the touch and compress easily when pressed. Formed on the neck, mouth, axillary and inguinal areas.
Hemangiomas formed from blood vessels of the circulatory system are distinguished by external signs and sizes:
Formations that can be located anywhere in the body, look like a blue-crimson or bright red spot. They are formed due to the expansion of the capillary vessel.
Cavernous or cavernous
Large formations containing several blood vessels that merge into large cavities. Such hemangiomas are placed above the skin. A typical place of localization is the face. Sometimes they can be on the internal organs – the uterus, spleen, liver.
A pulsating swelling formation that is filled with blood, combines several simple moles.
The smallest hemangiomas, which are small dots.

Where are they located?
Angiomas are formations of different sizes and shapes. They are localized in tissues and organs: on the skin, in adipose tissue, bone tissue, liver, muscles, brain, and kidneys.
On the body, such points appear in childhood and adolescence. Their appearance can also provoke pregnancy. Red points can be single or multiple. If the former is not dangerous, then the sudden appearance of multiple angiomas signals serious problems, including cancer.
Simple angiomas are located on the skin of the face and head. They are characterized by small size, spherical shape, purple-blue color. In some cases, angiomas can occupy significant areas on the eyelids, cheeks, nose, and external genitalia.
Cavernous angiomas localized on a subcutaneous basis. Sometimes they grow into the deeper layers, into the muscles and bones. This type of formation can develop in internal organs. 80% of angiomas are located in the upper body, on the chest, back, head, face, neck, arms. The most unfavorable location of angiomas considered to be the head. This is explained by the possibility of their damage during cutting when combing or blow-drying. Particular experiences in women cause red moles on the chest. Their single appearance does not carry any danger. However, if angiomas change color, begin to grow, itch or hurt, you should consult a doctor.
Causes of the appearance of red moles on the skin
According to experts, in most cases, such moles are innate. Sources of their development are vascular pathologies of the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Angiomas can appear at any age. Red moles often observed in children. From doctors, this is due to the transformation processes characteristic of this age.
In girls, angiomas form more often. Small formations pass independently, without medical intervention. One of the reasons for the appearance of angiomas in newborns considered to be infectious diseases transferred by the mother during pregnancy. In adults, the formation of angiomas occurs under the influence of hormonal changes and various malfunctions in the body.
- gastrointestinal tract diseases
- pancreatic pathology
- exacerbation of chronic infections
- deterioration of blood microcirculation
- dysfunction of pigment cells
- hereditary factor
- hormonal changes
- lipid metabolism disorders
- cardiovascular diseases
Doctors believe that the appearance of red moles contributes to excessive enthusiasm for sunbathing and a solarium. Angiomas can accompany diseases such as Shenlein-Genoch disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus. This happens because the immune system sees the cells of the body as foreign due to pathologies that have arisen and tries to suppress them. According to doctors, the appearance of angiomas may signal a violation of blood coagulation.
