Many people are dealing with skin marks and stains of which often appear out of nowhere. For example, moles are harmless, but other skin marks may be a sign of serious diseases.

Have you noticed any red spots on your skin that usually appear on the chest? These marks are called “ruby points” and are very common in people aged 40-45. However, sometimes they can also appear during the adolescent years. They are small capillary dilations which occur due to vascular system failure and most often appear on the arms or chest. They might either appear scattered throughout the skin or concentrated on a smaller area – if they are focused on a smaller area, they may be small benign tumors.

Are they a concern? How can they be removed?

So should you be worried if you notice those red dots? In most of the cases they do not come with any risk to our health, but if they appear on area that is visible to others, then people will get uncomfortable and that is why they will want to remove them. The red dots are benign tumors, or to be more specific they are non-carcinogenic. According to experts this is something similar to varicose veins but perpendicular to skin.
