The main reasons why red spots may appear on the body.
Factors that can be the cause of the appearance of tumors
The appearance of angiomas on the human body is usually associated with disorders that occur in the vascular and lymphatic systems. But at the moment it is difficult for specialists to give specific reasons, after which red dots appear on the skin. At the same time, there is a list of assumptions, which may in varying degrees be explained:
- Violation of the integrity of the skin. Microtrauma and sores can be the causes of this phenomenon. For example, wounded in the process of shaving, you can see red spots a few hours later, which will result from damage to the skin.
- Lack of vitamins. Red moles on the body of men, women and children can occur due to a lack of vitamins C and K. It is the lack of these organic compounds that is externally manifested in the form of red moles on the body.
- Diseases of the liver, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract. The result of the development of diseases of the liver and pancreas in the body are the points spreading through the upper part of the body. As a rule, they are distinguished by color (burgundy, crimson), although the shade always remains red.
If there are red birthmarks on the body of a child, this may indicate infectious diseases that the mother suffered during the pregnancy. Angiomas occur when a woman has suffered during pregnancy:
- viral SARS;
- exacerbation of existing chronic diseases.
Varieties of angiomas
Benign neoplasms in the form of red moles can be different in nature and origin in the layers of the skin.
In most cases, these points are a cluster of small capillaries, from which the vessels diverge, visible to the naked eye, despite their small size.Such benign tumors are called "arachnids." Another variation of a similarly shaped mole, but without the surrounding vascular grid, is the scatter.
There are also varieties of red moles, depending on their location. Medicine has known cases where several moles can be located on the body one after another (or in groups in a chaotic sequence). In such situations, we are talking about a tricky (cavernous) angiome.
Red moles are classified not only by external data, but also by deeper ones. For example, four groups of angiomas are distinguished depending on the composition of tissues:
Red moles may increase in size over time. In the course of rapid growth, these benign tumors can reach 1.5 cm or more. In this case, these points on the body are called "hemangioma". Most often, a treatment method is applied to them, which consists in surgical removal.
In addition to the obvious signs that occur when red moles appear on the body, there are also a number of symptoms.The main and most important of them include:
- red spots visible at the time of birth of the child in different places of the skin;
- neoplasms in the form of a rash-like sequence or group of points;
- small sized angiomas occurring throughout life.
The factors accompanying the appearance of these moles on the body do not include:
- temperature rise;
- feeling unwell;
- pain and itching of tumors.
In cases where such symptoms bother the patient, you should immediately visit a specialist. The same is recommended if such moles on the body begin to grow in size.
Effects of angiomas
As a rule, discomfort and other problems of angiomas that appear on different parts of the body of adults and children, do not deliver. However, in some cases, under the influence of other external factors can be caused by adverse effects.
For example, when exposed to ultraviolet rays, or when clothing (jewelry, shoes) is constantly in contact with areas, benign tumors can become a malignant tumor. In such situations, angiomas are a serious problem, as they can provoke skin cancer.
Methods of getting rid of angiomas (hemangiomas)
If on the body appeared harmless benign formations that do not cause problems to their carrier, the doctors do not resort to the appointment of treatment. This is explained by the fact that in most cases such points disappear as well as appear. Treatment is not required if similar moles on the body do not affect the patient's health.
To be removed are tumors located on the face. In such situations, patients resort to the operational method of treatment, based on an aesthetic point of view.
Today, thanks to modern medicine, the treatment of angiomas can be carried out by several methods. To identify the best way to get rid of such moles, you should be examined by specialists and, if necessary, tested.The doctor prescribes treatment on an individual basis for each patient, taking into account the nature of the neoplasm, the site of localization and the general state of human health.
It is worth noting that cautery will not be an effective method for removing angiomas. The most popular option to help remove red moles on the body is laser surgery. In addition to this technique, there are also others:
- coagulation (light, infrared);
- X-ray therapy;
- hardening of the vessels.
The consequences of removing benign neoplasms on the body can be blemishes, inflammation and scarring. After this procedure, experts strongly recommend to refrain from prolonged exposure to the sun and in the solarium.
In general, red birthmarks on the body, which appear in most cases as harmless benign neoplasms, do not constitute a danger to the health of the wearer (adult or child). If you notice a growth point, it is better to seek help from a doctor to identify the reason why they arose and dispel their fears.
