Hi,

i've had a small red spot on my nose for the last year or maybe a bit more. At first I thought it was a small zit, but it obviously isn't. It isn't getting bigger or anything, but i'm starting to worry about it a little. Does anyone know what it could be and what I should do? (i am living abroad and would rather wait until I go home in a few months to see a doctor as I feel more comfortable with the doctors at home, not to mention the language...)

thanks!

Annamaria

I have a similar looking red spot on my stomach (it has been there a couple of months I would estimate).Earlier on it more or less started to "scab over" but it itched , i picked at it and this is the result. Any comments would be welcomed...

Me too
I also have a small red spot on my nose for over a year and don't know what it is. My GP says it is like spider veins and I need to go to a vascular person, but I don't know. It is not a pimple and doesn't hurt or burn. It is on the tip of my nose and looks to the world like a pimple, but it is just a red spot.

well I also have a few actually they are really small a little smaller than a freckle and I have one on my chest, near my hairline, on my arm, and on my leg. They haven't hurt me so therefor I haven't been to the doctor for them yet. But if anyone knows what they could possibly be please post?
