Hi! I am concerned. I have had a few of these red spots before but in the past weeks or maybe also longer I notice that I have gotten plenty fresh red dots! The news ones are all small and have a diameter of maybe 1mm. I also have a few older ones which are bigger and also elevated but the most ones are small and even. I'm concerned. What does this mean? I showed this to my private doctor and he said it's nothing to worry about but when you're getting more and more of these then it's most likely not a good sign. http://img175.imageshack.us/my.php?image=68598244fn0.jpg http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=63630087rk7.jpg http://img258.imageshack.us/my.php?image=18930604uj7.jpg http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=86492838ec9.jpg
