Small red freckles or moles, not sure.
« on: April 26, 2014, 11:16:28 PM »
I'm posting a picture of my latest worry, all of the sudden I've been getting these little red freckle things, mostly on my chest and now I have these two on my hand (picture I included) I've never noticed them before, they are stressing me out!!! I'm worried they are skin cancer or something.

You don't have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

I had those start on my right calf, then they went to my left calf, then the whole leg, then the other leg, then my back then my stomach, then my arms - a week later they started getting itchy and a little raised!  The ONLY thing I could think of was some kind of dermatitis and it started when I began taking the brown flaxseed softgels!  Prior to that I had taken the golden ones.  I stopped the flaxseed and in about a week all was better.   If it starts to spread think back to what you were doing new!
(When I first started getting them they looked like petechaei or something and scared me!  I had a BP doctor appointment and asked about them at that time, he just said, "Those are nothing")

Yea I feel like I'm seeing them everywhere now, maybe because I'm looking. The newest thing I've been taking is cranberry pills for my reoccurring uti's, I started those in February.

Do they start off like a TEENY, TINY red dot UNDER the skin?  That's how mine were, then some got bigger and half of them raised, some with a tiny water blister on them, some stayed as tiny red dots.  (like I said though, all gone now after stopping the flaxseed)  Stop the cranberry pills and see what happens.

Yes mine do start out really tiny! I mostly have them on my Chest and top of my hands, I have my yearly girly check up in June and I'm going to mention them to my dr and see what she thinks. I think my biggest concern is why all of the sudden I'm getting them, I read that they can come with age but I'm only 24. Maybe it has something to do with having light skin. I don't know and I'm trying to not google. :)

That looks like a cherry angioma - those are completely common and benign unless they bleed or keep growing.  I have gotten more as I got older which is common.
