Cherry Angiomas (also called “Campbell de Morgan spots”) are harmless, small, red (cherry red) raised bumps created by dilated blood vessels.
Cherry angiomas occur in more than 85 percent of middle-aged and elderly people, especially those people who are fair skin, and most commonly appear on the trunk.
Electrocautery, laser surgery, or other surgical therapies safely and effectively remove these harmless cherry angiomas.
There is no safe and effective home treatment. 1-2 treatment sessions by your dermatologist are often needed to clear cherry angiomas, though new lesions will continue to appear with age and cannot be prevented.
