If you suddenly got a confusing red dot on your skin, don’t worry. The Bright Side team found out why they appear and how to prevent them from spreading.
Angioma is a small benign tumor that contains blood vessels. There are 2 major reasons for its development:
1. Age. Many people get angioma at the age of 30 or more. As a rule, in this case it resembles a small convex cherry mole and is mainly located on the body, hands and shoulders. Such angiomas are caused by simple age changes of the skin and blood vessels.
2. Health problems or wrong lifestyle. If angioma looks like a spot and vascular branching begins, it may indicate problems with the liver, vascular diseases, or hormonal failure.
If you suddenly notice that a familiar red mole unexpectedly changes shape, size, or has started bleeding, you will consult a doctor as soon as possible. Angiomas are usually not the reason for going to the hospital. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, it is better to mention them in your next scheduled appointment.
It is also a good idea not to see angiomas in the future. The best prevention is a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet. Drink juice and plenty of water, eat fresh vegetables, and don’t forget healthy fats like avocado and olive oil. These simple rules will help keep your skin clean and young and your body healthy.
Schlessinger also suggests looking at ingredients in their beauty and beauty products, especially hair care.
“Hair dye is the most common culprit, other hair products can also cause skin redness, itching, and swelling, including hairspray, shampoos and conditioners,” he says. “Often these skin reactions are caused by scented or propylene glycol.”
The conditioner specifically contains an ingredient called isopropyl myristate, which can clog pores and give rise to pimples if it is not properly removed from the skin. The best way to find out if any of your fav products is the reason for your spot? Avoid lathing with them for a few weeks so that the spots disappear.
