A.
Blood-red spots may be attributed to dilated small vessels on your face, or telangiectasia. The majority of these "red spots" are benign. However, on occasion, they are associated with other medical conditions such as acne, rosacea, scleroderma, and birthmarks. Your first step is to exclude any underlying medical conditions. Then your physician may recommend a topical product or laser treatment.
